Alegría Fresh announced today it has partnered with Orange County Produce, LLC, to offer a locally grown, certified organic, freshly harvested summer vegetable box. Delivering on its promise to offer the freshest produce available, Alegría’s vegetable box is delivered within 24 hours of harvest and can be customized to suit individual tastes.
Orange County Produce, LLC, is managed by third-generation family members A.G. and Matthew Kawamura, farming over 800 acres within the urban boundaries of Orange County.
Alegría Fresh offer its subscribers and local chefs an array of seasonal vegetables including organic green beans, cranberry beans, yellow squash and green zucchini, cucumbers, red and golden beets, purple carrots, radishes, strawberries, blue, red and curly kale, green bell peppers and more, all grown in Orange County.
The 12 pound plus box of vegetables is $35 including delivery within Laguna Beach city limits. Those outside of Laguna Beach can arrange for pick up.
Through hydroponic vertical farming, Alegría Farm grows leafy greens, medicinal herbs and vegetables up to seven times more nutrient rich as anything found in the local supermarkets while using no soil, 90 percent less water, 70 percent less land and 50 percent less fertilizer. On special order, subscribers can receive these greens and medicinal herbs delivered to their door within two hours of harvest.
In addition to vegetables and greens, Alegría Fresh also offers sunflower sprouts and other microgreens such as fenugreek and pea shoots. Sprouted seeds are nature’s most complete and nutrient-dense food, and Alegría Fresh delivers them within an hour of their harvest to retain their full flavor and nutrient load.
