in this day and age our way of life has changed dramatically, and with that-our methods of socializing, working, and shopping have been totally transformed because of the current world-wide crisis. My family and I have been isolating ourselves as much as is humanly possible, even to the point of utilizing online shopping for just about everything from shampoo to groceries and fresh food delivery, and we’re definitely not in the minority.
We’ve tried quite a few of the ‘other’ well-known providers in the area, believing that they would have a nice selection for fruit and produce along with reasonable delivery dates. Nothing is further from the truth, especially with the ‘big-box-brands’ with their tremendous buying power. It seems that the bigger they are; the quality of service and product declines noticeably. And with it-comes delays and disappointments.
After several delayed orders and a few delayed deliveries; we’ve cut the cord to the big-brand services and found a local provider that has a convenient selection of fruits and veggies and delivers in a very timely manner. We were quite pleased with the ease of ordering, the multiple methods of payment available and very impressed with their delivery abilities. Fresh Harvest Produce Delivery definitely has a simple, yet unique approach to the fresh fruit and veggie game, and it fits us perfectly.
but why haven’t we heard about this place before? That’s because it was literally formed about a week ago on April 17. Eamon Kalafchi, from the Frisco based restaurant Biscuit partnered up with some bad-ass management gurus from the Starwood Café in McKinney and Barbac’s in Dallas to get this implemented and going full-throttle. Since these local eateries had to curtail business because of the pandemic declarations, they wanted a way to help their community and still keep their current staff employed as well. They keep busy assembling the boxes as well as making the deliveries the same or next day.
Basically, you can order three different pre-packed packages. Each one costing just $40.00, which includes FREE shipping, and generally can feed 4-6 people.
- Large Box Assortment of Vegetables
- Large Box Assortment of Fruits
- Large Box Assortment of Mixed Fruits and Veggies
They currently provide produce delivery to several local north Dallas communities, especially those in Plano, Frisco and McKinney. Kalafchi said that they’re receiving requests each day from other close-by cities such as The Colony, Fairview, Prosper, Celina and others. “The demand for our service is increasing daily, and expansion to nearby cities may become a reality.” If you’re unsure if you may be in their delivery area, simply call them first before you place an order. They just may be able to squeeze you in. Currently they deliver to these Zip Codes: 75093, 75094, 75023, 75024, 75025, 75033, 75034, 75035, 75036, 75013, 75074, 75056, 75075, 75069, 75070, 75071, and 75072.
And for those of you that are philanthropic in nature, and want to gift a food box to a family in need, they have a LINK where you can do this as well. This pandemic is affecting a lot of families who otherwise would never need assistance, but from what we’ve been seeing on the news, caravans of vehicles flock to the food distribution sites every day in growing numbers. There is most assuredly a food crisis occurring to those who may have not faced a situation like this before.
these are the kind of businesses that we like to support. They’re not some big industrialized conglomerate with 1000’s of employees. They are our neighbors and our friends who work and live among us in the area. They are family oriented and they are local. And these are the guys that we like to help the most. If you’re looking for no-frills, no hassles and no complications, we suggest that you give them a try. Each time that you order, you’ll have something a little different. And it will be in season, and it will be fresh and it won’t break the bank either. And that’s very important to us now more than ever.
