*** THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSE. Congratulations to Nicki from Bentonville, lucky #13. You are the winner! ***
Welcome to Day 3 of weeklong giveaways focused on all-things-local because I am celebrating my four-year blog anniversary and showering you with awesome presents.
Day 3: Local Farmer’s Bounty: Farm Box Delivers, a local, organic and all natural food delivery service.
This giveaway is truly bountiful.
In fact, it may just blow your mind a bit as it has mine.
There is a new delivery service in town called Farm Box Delivers that supports local farmers, growers, and ranchers by providing them with a means of distribution beyond the local farmer’s markets. It is a two-fold business that services you and me via a home delivery service in Northwest Arkansas while at the same time helping our local community farmers establish a distribution service of their goods beyond the usual growing season. That means our small farmers have the ability to get more of their goods out and that we have more opportunities to try them!
I love that 98% - 99% of everything they sell is local.
This fact greatly excites me and is one of the reasons why I wanted to have this specific giveaway for you.
Another reason for my excitement is the flexibility of this service, which astounds me. Orders can be one-time only or a routine subscription service, and all can be customized to your taste buds and seasonal desires. Their facebook page is constantly keeping me abreast of what is new and available as they do a great job of highlighting local farmers, ranchers, and gardeners.
Zach Brown and his wife, Christie, started Farm Box Delivers about a year ago and is based in Lowell. Business is bounding with local enthusiasm and support and they are in the process of adding another distribution center in the River Valley.
Okay, there is much more we can chat about Farm Box Delivers but I will leave that for another time. There are two things I want to leave you with today:
Consider shopping local. Browse their “shop” of locally made products for inspiration. Check out the photos on the bottom of this post to see the cornucopia of availability.
Enter this giveaway and get your first Farm Box Delivers delivery free. Oh my, it’s a good one… I am jealous.
A lucky someone will be receiving one Farm Box delivery that includes a Localvore Farm Box and a three day Paleo Prepared Meal. When I said the words “bounty” and “cornucopia” earlier, I meant it!
Contest ends next Wednesday, September 11th at midnight (CDT). I will pick a winner via randomizer.

No purchase necessary to enter. Contest void where prohibited. Contest open to members who are 18 years or older. Contest open only to US residents only. Although this really giveaway only makes sense if you live close in the Farm Box delivery area, are planning to visit, or want to give this to someone who lives in this area. I was compensated by a sample box of vegetables, chicken, turkey, and flowers. All exceeded my expectations and the green bell pepper I ate actually had amazing flavor. A green pepper!
