Frequently Asked Questions
What is local?
We consider the state of Georgia to be local and our neighboring states to be regional. We always start locally, in and around Atlanta, to find all of your food and then work to fill in the gaps, statewide and then regionally.
- Is my produce organic?
How is my meat & fish raised?
We work with farmers who raise their animals with humane practices. Our animals are all hormone & antibiotic free, raised on vegetarian diets & are treated humanely. The chickens are cage-free & certified humanely raised from Springer Mountain Farms (Mount Airy, GA) or pasture-raised from White Oak Pastures (Bluffton, GA). Riverview Farms (Ranger, GA) supplies all of our pork, where the pigs forage and root in the pastures, and the cows from Painted Hills enjoy access to grass their whole lives. Most of our fish is domestic & wild-caught and is recommended as sustainable by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch. The trout is our only farm-raised fish, harvested from sustainable farms in the Southern Appalachian Region.

OUR MEAL KITS
What if I have special dietary needs?
No problem! With our weekly selection of meals, we hope to have some great options that you can enjoy. If you're staying away from gluten, you'll find most of our meals can be easily altered to avoid gluten and we’ll note if it’s an optional ingredient or not. If you ever have any questions, simply contact us and we’ll help you choose the best fit.
What if I have food allergies?
Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate very specific food allergies at this time. We process a variety of ingredients each week, including the top allergens. We do not have a separate processing area for gluten free items or nut-free items. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
Do you have vegetarian menu options?
We try to have at least one vegetarian or pescatarian option available each week and are working on expanding our offerings! Many of our meals can be eaten without the meat and be very satisfying. If you have meat-eater friends, they can take it off your hands!
Do I need to wash my fruits and veggies?
We love our farm fresh fruits and veggies and recommend washing them before cooking as they are often straight from the farm!
How long are the meals good for?
Everything is packed to stay fresh for several days. We recommend eating your meals within 4-5 days of receiving them, however, some items will definitely stay fresh for longer! Concerned? Put your meats in the freezer, and our veggies are harvested to order, so heartier veggies should be ok! Recipes that include pre-cut items and freshly baked breads should be eaten earlier in the week.
What comes with each delivery?
Your delivery comes with all the raw ingredients you need to produce meals for the week (based on your subscription), in exactly the right portions. The only ingredients you need in your kitchen are salt, pepper, olive oil & butter. Some recipes will call for eggs, wine or beer, but we’ll remind you if you need any of those for your meal!
How do I thaw my meat or fish?
To thaw your meat or fish for dinner this week, place it in the fridge in a plastic bag. To thaw your meat or fish for dinner tonight you can either place in a plastic bag and submerge in cold tap water, or under running cold tap water or thaw in the microwave.
