I'm really glade when I bump into some new, really interesting and exciting projects! Well here we go! I found this website called AGRYCULT where you can get a subscription for a box of italian and fresh fruit or veg and they are able to send it straight to your place!! It's a great idea!
We don't need to go anymore to the supermarket, we know what we are eating, we know that they are italian, we know that they are fresh, we can eat the seasonal veg and we also help the italian agricolture to grow up! They can source seasonal food and support Italian farming. You can aslo buy some cheeses from them and I guess they wanna enlarge their store with more and more local prodact. I think this comunity of farmers is based in Molise (South of Italy).The objective of this is to come together buyers and local farmers: it's a simple way to eat healthily, and it doesn't cost the earth.
They are working a lot on line right now and you can reach them on their blog, twitter and facebook! You can aslo find some recipes and advise how is the best way to cook and eat the food.
Marco Vitale is one of the creator of this service and I have to admit that these guys are doing a really good job!
How it works:
Every week they can send you a balanced diet of fresh fruit and veg that changes with the seasons.
You'll get delicious, organic fruit&veg from experienced small-scale growers who love what they do.
Why are they asking for a subscription? Because your weekly order can help them to plan crops with the farmers, keeping them in business and you in healty food.
If you are interested in this new and ambitious project contact them for sure they'll help you better understand this challenge.
I like this and I wanna support it!!
