We tried their service for 3 months this summer. Started out awful with rotten peaches, sweet corn with lares in it, and mushy tomatoes. The selection is limited, and several times they could not meet the requests for spices. Average cost including home delivery was $56/ week. We compared to buying at fresh market, and we ended up with a lot more veggies and better quality organic veggies for the same cost. Bottom line, not worth it.

I'm so pleased. My kids look forward to what comes in our box. They enjoy eating it because it's so fresh and tastes so good. To have your children get excited about shucking corn and snapping beans is just amazing. To know that it's also helping Alabama Farmers is PRICELESS!!

Pros & Cons

Pros
amazing vegetables that are 100% organic! Excellent customer service. If something goes wrong, it is corrected the next week. Fruit & Veggies are top quality and I know my kids aren't getting pesticides. Makes the stuff I used to buy at the grocery store look like garbage! I LOVE Grow Alabama and my children agree!
Cons
I can't think of much to say. Sometimes, things have to be substituted but that's only because they won't send you sub-par product.
