CT Farm Fresh Express is an organization that delivers fresh and primarily organic products directly from local farms or producers to your home or restaurant, year-round. They carry everything from fruit and vegetables to fair trade coffee, chocolate chip cookies, raw milk in glass bottles, pasture-raised meats, local honey, handmade soap, and grain-free dog treats.
CT Farm Fresh’s website stresses the importance of buying locally: “Agriculture preserves land for food production now and in the future. Additionally, it provides a natural habitat for wildlife to live in. When you buy locally grown food products you do your part in lowering the environmental costs and impacts associated with the transportation of industrial farmed foods.”
CT Farm Fresh is only available to residents of Connecticut. The online store is open from Thursday evening until Tuesday morning. On Wednesdays, employees travel to local farms to pick up ordered products, which are delivered to customers on Thursdays by van.
Online orders require a $30 minimum purchase and include a delivery fee, which varies depending on zip code. For more information, call (860)873-8760.
