Door to Door Organics

The official start of summer is only days away, but it's already started to feel like it around Ohio. We've been enjoying patio weather, digging the grill out of the garage, and fresh, local produce is popping up everywhere. We decided to do a small share of Fresh Fork again this year. When we actually menu plan and work strategically to use up the items in our weekly bag, it does work well for us and I enjoy the program.

Similarly, a new service has started in Ohio, called Door to Door Organics. They provided me with a store credit, and asked me to test and review the service. I also have some great things for you, so keep on reading! 
They are bringing fresh, seasonal organic produce and local, natural products right to your doorstep. No pick-up locations, or having to remember to schedule in the errand each week. You simply receive a newsletter listing that shipment's contents, and then it appears at your door on the scheduled day.
Immediately, I loved that you can set Preferences and identify items that you don't want included in your shipments. No bananas for Mr. H, and I get enough kale from Fresh Fork. I'm not a huge fan, and I didn't want to have to figure out how to use even more. 

Also, prior to each shipment, you can Swap items or Shop for extras. The store is quite extensive, with the exception of the Seafood category, and subbing items in your box was super easy to do. The online service was so easy to use! It reminded me of Fresh Fork's extras that you can add on, but this system was much simpler to use and had a wider selection of items. 

We've had three weeks of shipments come to our doorstep now.
Fresh produce, and great add-on items like pasta, sauces, and meat.
We haven't had any issues with the quality of produce, and it's all arrived perfectly cooled or still frozen in the Door to Door packaging.
Now, it does arrive with a lot of packaging. Between the packing, dividers, and dry ice packs, it can seem wasteful. But, you just pack it back up and set it outside on delivery day. Door to Door Organics takes it back for you. 

Are you interested in trying this service? If you're a new customer, you can save $10 on your first order by using this special link. Just make sure that the Coupon Code: BITEBUFF15O is entered. 

I'm also giving away one $50 shop credit certificate! Just leave me a comment on this blog post about what your favorite summer produce item is. Also, you can tweet "I want to try @dtdorganics, thanks to @BiteBuff http://www.bitebuff.com/2015/06/door-to-door-organics.html." Make sure that you leave a separate comment for each tweet. You can tweet once a day for additional entries. I will select a winner, using random.org, on Thursday, June 18th. Good luck!

Disclosure: I was provided with a shop credit to use to test the service in exchange for an honest review and hosting a giveaway. Readers were also provided with a discount code. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you to Door to Door Organics for the opportunity to have fresh, organic produce delivered right to my door!

Summer berries! And tomatoes! I am a glutton for both. Strawberries, black raspberries, blueberries! I buy them all and stuff myself silly. And, oh! fresh, ripe Ohio tomatoes... I eat SO MANY tomato sandwiches in the summer.

Local tomatoes in the summer are heavenly! I could also eat an entire watermelon in 2-3 days in the summer :)

Heirloom tomatoes. Caprese salad is one of my faves for summer.
