Note On Keeping Salad Greens Fresh: Our salad greens are delivered to you in perforated Ziplock bags. This allows the greens to "dry out" since, after we wash and spin them, the greens still retain some moisture. We have researched dozens of different types of bags in which to ship our salad greens but we have found nothing better than the perforated Ziplock bags. They are great for storing our salad greens!
The more you open the bag, the quicker the greens will start to deteriorate. If conditions are too dry, the greens will wilt. If conditions are too wet, the greens will spoil. It is essential to find the right balance for your refrigerator. If your salad greens dry out or wilt, try washing and spinning them and then putting them back in a perforated Ziplock bag. In twelve hours or so, they should be "revived." If your experience has shown you any other useful tips on keeping the greens fresh, please let us know!
Note About Our Plastic Ziplock Bags: The perforated bags the salad greens come in are great storage bags for any type of vegetable! Please return them to us after use. We wash and recycle them and return the bags to you with fresh salad greens.
Our baskets are now entirely environmentally friendly. This means that all plastic bags which contain your vegetables are biodegradable and can be composed or placed in your trash with a clear conscience that the bag will decompose within three to six months. Of course, you may re-use the bags until they start to fall apart, but please do not return them to us.
We also use biodegradable “plastic” containers made from corn husks. Our micro-greens, tomatoes, and pea shoots will come in these containers as well as in containers which are made from plastic. We ask that these containers be returned to us (“open”) in your cooler each week. We wash and re-use them until they break down at which point they go into the compost pile. Please be sure to return these containers to us!
We are very pleased, not only to have a farm dedicated to sustainable agriculture, but we are also doing all that we can to make sure that our certified organic vegetables arrive at your door in containers which will not add to greenhouse emissions.
