Whether you’re looking for seasonal fruits and vegetables or freshly bottled milk, here are some of the best local farm delivery services.

Pound Ridge Organics

Donna Simons, chef and owner of Pound Ridge Organics (poundridgeorganics.com), set up a CSA to cater to the rising home-cooking trend. She carefully curates baskets of fresh, organic, and ethically produced seasonal produce, which include herbs, eggs, and honey from her farm but also items from more than 150 local farms and artisanal producers. Simons also includes simple recipes, accommodates all diets, and provides themed baskets throughout the year. You can purchase a full or half share, depending on how much you need, and though customers usually pay upfront for a 13-week season, it is possible to join midway.

Sign up for a weekly or monthly delivery from Nature’s Cradle, a nursery (Eastchester; naturescradlenursery.com/farmers-market), and you’ll get a cooler of fresh, seasonal produce with a mix of vegetables, fruits, baked goods with gluten-free options, honey, jams, cheeses, and eggs. It all comes straight from its Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative, in Pennsylvania.
