Fresh Produce At Your Door {A Review of Green BEAN Delivery}

Do you love fresh fruits and vegetables? Do you struggle finding exactly what you want, or the quality you crave in your grocery store produce section? Do you like supporting local farmers? If you answered yes to all of these questions, and live in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky or Missouri...then I've got the answer for you...Green BEAN Delivery!

"Green BEAN Delivery is a year-round delivery service that brings the freshest local and organic produce and natural groceries right to your doorstep! You are able to customize your orders online, so you get exactly what you want (this is my favorite part!) and with their easy, flexible risk-free membership, you can do it with peace of mind. It truly is an affordable, convenient, and fun way for the whole family to eat healthy!" ~From their website

I had heard of Green BEAN Delivery through a few friends who were already signed up and loving their weekly deliveries, so I was so excited to try it for myself. Upon creating my membership, I was prompted to choose the size of bin I wanted. Now, I was offered the Small Produce bin (a $35 value), but for others families there is a Medium Produce, a Fruit Only, a Large Produce, and a Fruit, Vegetable and Grocery Bin. So, many options depending on the size of your family and budget.

You can also choose if you want your bin delivered weekly, or every other, which I think is super smart of them, because if you're paying for these beautiful fruits and veggies, you want to make sure you are able to use them without them going bad before you get more.

Once your membership is set up, and your bin selection is made, they actually send you an email reminder the week before your scheduled delivery, allowing you 2-3 days to customize your order. For example my delivery was set for October 4th, so I got an email on the Friday before and had until that Monday to customize and decide what I wanted. I could switch out things I didn't think I would use, I could change quantities, and their online system kept track of everything, making sure I had enough, but not too much for the bin size I chose.

I was SO excited to see that green bin on my front stoop when I came home that Friday, and boy they did not disappoint! It was full of exactly what I asked for, and everything was so fresh, beautiful and mouth watering!

Included in my bin:
1 Fresh Pineapple
1 small bag Mini Peppers
2 pounds Green Beans
4 Ears Corn
1 pound Organic Green Grapes
2 Acorn Squash
1 Medium Onion
1 box Mini Cucumbers
4 Pears

Isn't that an amazing sight? Wouldn't you love for that to be brought right to your front door? And I can tell you every single item tasted as great as it looked. Those green beans were the most delicious ones I've ever had, hands down. My husband raved about the pineapple, and the acorn squash and onion turned into a yummy fall recipe I will be sharing with ya'll soon! 

If you are trying to get your kids to appreciate, enjoy and eat more fresh fruits and veggies, I think this would be a fantastic way to help. From helping choose what comes in the bin, to watching for the delivery each week, to unpacking it, to setting out the empty bin the next week (Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, they pick up the empty bins and packing materials too!) kids would get such a kick out of the whole process!
