The Farm Taste Review and Unboxing

date April 29, 2020 location The Kitchen

As I mentioned in an earlier post, a co-worker of mine introduced me to his friend's startup: The Farm Taste. The service is brand new, and the founder personally delivers food directly from local farms that have lost business due to lost demand from the restaurant industry. Having these boxes delivered has both helped avoid or delay making a trip to the grocery store, and also adds some excitement and quality to my meals as restaurant-quality meals remain a figment of the distant past for the foreseeable future.

I am not compensated in any way for making this and other posts about the Farm Taste, I am simply posting because of my own excitement about it, and because I think it's an idea that will catch on.

Without further ado, here are a few photos I took during an unboxing of my latest order: The Essential Dairy Box, and the Vegetarian Farm Box.

The Essential Dairy Box (Family Size) includes:
1/2 gallon Fresh Milk
1 dozen Fresh Eggs
1/2 lb Brick Cheese
1/2 lb Butter

Of all the items I've received, I may have been the most impressed with the milk. The milk comes from a local dairy farm and I was just blown away with the creaminess of it. I usually buy whole milk at the store and even store bought whole milk can't hold a candle to the creaminess of this milk. It's as if all the milk I've been drinking has been watered down compared to this.

The Vegetarian Farm Box came with:
1 lb Asparagus
1 lb Beets
2 lb Cabbage
1 lb Carrots
2 lb Celery
1 Garlic Head
4 Portobello Mushrooms
2 Bell Peppers
4 Russet Potatoes
1 bunch Spinach
1 bunch Parsley
1 bunch Green Onions
3 cups Strawberries
1 loaf Fresh Bread from a local bakery

As you can see there are a ton of goodies included. I actually had to leave out some of the strawberries and spinach so I could fit everything in the frame. The quality of everything is superb and I may have trouble if I ever have to go back to grocery store bought vegetables.
