Produce is often picked up at our farms the day before we deliver the produce to you. We order only what we need for each week. On Saturday mornings, we offer discounted baskets to eliminate food waste, available for pick up, from 9-2. $20 cash or check.
Our local farms are defined by our delivery area: North & South Carolina. We depend on our network of farmers to supply us with seasonal, yet diverse produce. Having the luxury of multiple growing regions in the Carolinas helps us to provide year-round local food. We develop personal relationships with every one of our growers & food artisans, most of them are small family-owned businesses like ourselves.
While we strive to choose
The majority of the farms we work with certified organic*, with over 80% of our produce falling in this category. We do however also source from farmers who utilize organic growing practices, but are not certified, as this is often restrictive and cost prohibitive for the small farmer. Each product will be noted with the growing practice and source. To maintain transparency, items labeled organic are from farms certified by the USDA. Organically grown are items from farms that are not certified by utilizing organic growing practices. This is common for small farms.

Our core desire at Mother Earth Food is to create stronger more sustainable relationships between our farmers and community. In early 2019, we made a shift in our model in that we now ask that our customers commit to a weekly or biweekly ordering of produce baskets. This relationship is win-win for everyone. It helps the farmer achieve a successful season, helps create a more sustainable business for Mother Earth Food, and helps our community by strengthening the local food economy. Our commitment to our customers is the same. We bring you the highest quality, freshest, local organic food to help you create and sustain a “food as medicine” lifestyle that is easy and convenient.
It's easy to make your produce basket recurring on a weekly or biweekly basis. From your account just add a small, medium or large fixed or customizable produce basket to your order and choose the weekly or biweekly option. After February 15th, 2019, these ordering intervals will represent the available options. Customization of baskets for each week begins at noon on Friday and modifications are allowable through Tuesday at noon.
Going out of town? Unable to receive a delivery? Not to worry! If you need to pause deliveries, you can, by using the “Skip Delivery” feature in “My Account” and set the dates you will be away. This should be done before the Tuesday noon cut-off. Additionally, if you would like to remove your produce basket from your cart, you can, so long as the remainder of the order reaches the $28 minimum for delivery.
You can also update notes to the drivers for delivery. If it is an upcoming delivery after the ordering cut-off, please contact customer care.
