“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.
