“Front Door Farms brings the farm to your front door, delivering fresh produce the way farmers intended it to taste,” said Brian Modena, President of Front Door Farms. “We work with local farmers to harvest the highest quality produce, carefully packed and delivered to your home or office the next day.”
Front Door Farms harvests produce at its peak freshness, resulting in higher nutritional values and a longer usage window for customers to enjoy. Additionally, Front Door Farms uses active cold chain management technologies, combined with the logistics capabilities of local delivery services, to deliver the freshest possible produce to customers.
“We are on a mission to set new standards for quality, taste and value by delivering authentic farm fresh produce direct to consumers and businesses,” said Modena. “Working directly with local farmers allows us to select only the highest quality produce for each order, resulting in a difference our customers can see and taste.”
Front Door Farms offers a flexible, mobile friendly online shopping experience where consumers can shop from an extensive assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables, including specially-crafted theme boxes, and bulk boxes.
The convenience of online ordering and home delivery offers customers the ability to build their meals around healthy fruits and vegetables and have fun with meal preparation. By working directly with farmers, Front Door Farms can offer customers the ability to try new varieties that may not be available in their local grocery stores.
In order to minimize environmental impact, Front Door Farms works with existing residential and commercial delivery services. These services allow for fast, flexible and reliable delivery of product direct to customers. Each order is hand-packed and carefully prepared for next-day delivery.
“By working with delivery services people already know and trust, Front Door Farms can service customers across metropolitan, suburban and rural communities,” said Modena. “This allows us to meet the needs of our customers throughout northern California and quickly expand into new markets.”
Currently, all orders over $35 ship for free. Additionally, there are no expensive membership fees or commitments. First time customers can receive 20 percent off their first purchase by using the discount code “FirstTimeFresh” – more information can be found at FrontDoorFarms.com or on the company’s Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest pages. Also, healthy living tips, recipes and nutritional information can be found on the FrontDoorFarms.com Healthy Living blog.

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
