The Locavore’s Deliverance
St. Louisans who want to eat healthy and support local producers now have a way to get the good stuff brought right to their door. Green BEAN Delivery, which offers home delivery of local and organic produce and groceries around the Midwest, recently added St. Louis to its list of cities.
Green BEAN (the BEAN stands for Biodynamic Education, Agriculture and Nutrition) features year-round drop-offs of a variety of foods with a choice of delivery options, as well as other initiatives like Cool School Lunch, which provides educational institutions a way to order wholesale fruits and veggies.
Participating purveyors in the metro area include Geisert Farms, Buttonwood Farm, Good Earth Egg Company, Boeckmann Family Farm, Heartland Creamery, Companion, Mississippi Mud Coffee, Dogtown Pizza and Big Bison Meat Company. The company started local operations back in February, and the first delivery was a charitable one: one ton of fresh produce to the St. Louis Area Foodbank.
