Curbside Veggies? Sonoma County Farms Offer Pickup, Delivery

With restaurant orders down to almost nothing, farmers need your help, and they're making it easy.

Wishing you had some fresh local produce delivered to your door, or available for pickup? Local farmers are ramping up ways to get their products directly to consumers during the coronavirus outbreak. Here are a few favorites…

F.E.E.D-Bin

Recommended: O’hana Food box, $35. Includes fruits/veggies aggregated from local farms. shop.feedsonoma.com/Products

Restauranteurs have long used F.E.E.D. (Farmer’s Exchange of Earthly Delights) for their specialty agricultural items, but the business is pivoting to offer those tasty products to the general public. O’hana box with 8 to 9 items (family) is $35, single boxes with 6 items is $25.

F.E.E.D has recently become California’s first farmer and employee-owned fresh-produce co-op. Boxes can be picked up in Petaluma, at one of 10 drop spots, or for delivery (for an additional fee). Details at shop.feedsonoma.com/Products.
