The first peachy fingers of dawn reach over the Salinas Valley
lighting Efren Avalos' work as he cuts florets of broccoli for the
FruitGuys TakeHome box. “I harvest the same day I
deliver,” says Avalos. He brings his produce directly from his
Hollister, CA farm to the FruitGuys where it is boxed and delivered to
subscribers’ desks at work. FruitGuys TakeHome gives existing
San Francisco Bay Area clients the ability to offer their employees
the chance to get exceptional weekly produce at a great price.
Employees can set up their own FruitGuys account and the easy-to-carry
“fruit-case” is delivered to the office to take home.
Each week we offer a diverse mix of fresh, regional organic vegetable
and fruit mixes starting at just $24.
TakeHome delivery at work is easy to order and maintain. Each
Monday you receive an email reminder and link to that week's mix; you
can change the size of your box, your choice of veggies only, fruit
only, or fruit and veggies, or postpone your order for that week.
FruitGuys’ Buyer Rebecca coordinates directly with local
family farmers and regional suppliers to find the best in seasonal
produce. Weekly customer feedback permits farmers like Avalos to know
just how much to harvest for the FruitGuys.
Each week’s TakeHome box includes a newsletter with the
history, lore, and preparation of featured vegetables, as well as a
selection of seasonal recipes using the box’s ingredients.
“I really enjoy this program because it brings the customers
and farmers together,” says FruitGuy Bridget, who runs
TakeHome. “TakeHome is a great way to make local organic
TakeHome boxes are hand packed and delivered to customer's desks, or
company reception, by noon on Thursdays. Customers love the mid-week
delivery of farmer's market-fresh fare. “Upon opening the box,
I was stunned by the glorious colors that jumped out at me - purples,
oranges, greens. I just had to stare at it for a few moments to
appreciate the loveliness contained in my little box!" says Suzanne
Holthaus, who receives her weekly vegetable box at Oracle.
The cost of the weekly subscription is competitive with natural food
stores, but the selection of regional food is
incomparable—you’ll only find it through the
FruitGuys. The TakeHome box closes securely and has an easy-to-carry
handle; the average weight is about 10 pounds, depending on order size
and your mix. The FruitGuys can pick up the empty boxes from your
office with your next delivery, but many customers love to re-use them
for everything from kids’ briefcases to storage to wine bottle
The FruitGuys is committed to healthy snacks at the workplace, and is
pleased to offer the TakeHome box to employees of our regular San
Francisco Bay Area customers as an additional wellness benefit. Call
or contact us today to get fresh produce and recipes for dinner
delivered right to your desk each week. Instead of work, take wellness
