What is HelloHarvest?

HelloHarvest is an easy way to eat well. Our community consists of farmers, families, schools, chefs and individuals who value what they are putting into their bodies. HelloHarvest works directly with local, organic and sustainable farmers and delivers their harvests to your doorstep in the shortest amount of time possible.

Who grows HelloHarvest food?

HelloHarvest sources your produce from local farmers and artisans in Santa Barbara, Ventura, San Luis Obispo, and Los Angeles counties.  What they have ripe and in-season is what you get to enjoy.

Why would I sign up for HelloHarvest delivery instead of shopping at the supermarket?

The produce we deliver is farm-ripened, unlike supermarket produce that needs to be picked ahead of time to withstand the shipping and shelf life of the store.  Typical supermarket produce has travelled an average of 1500 miles and is over 7 days old.  HelloHarvest produce comes from local farms and is at your doorstep within 1-3 days of being harvested.  The taste of local fruits and vegetables picked at their peak is unmistakable, and the benefits to our bodies, planet and local economy can’t be beat.
