Where does Bountiful Produce come from?

If you look out your window and there is snow covering the ground, or you note that your plants are withering in 115 degree heat we probably are not getting a lot of produce from where you are right now. Does that mean never? No… That means not right now. It’s not harvest season in your neck of the woods right now. So where does Bountiful food come from?

    Does the organic items come from the same places as the non organic items? Or is all the organic produced in the USA?

    I was just wondering if you ever offer things like meats and fish. I’d like to join but a large basket of just fruits and veggies would be too much for my husband and I to eat. We are in Las Vegas.

    What was that celery like vegetable in my organic basket today? Had long stems and hairlike leaves.

  6. Set an alarm! There are many areas where baskets are spoken for very quickly. In the long term volunteering at your local site and training to open a site or be a backup volunteer site coordinator helps to ensure there are enough baskets available in your area!

    I know they may be hard to get but I would love to see bulk green peas in the pods. That is something that I am not able to find in Montana. It would be great to sit down with my kids and shell the peas & the can them!

    Thank you for all you do!

    Hi ladies, I was wondering if you offer a corporate deal? Please let me know, as I have several willing co-workers ready to jump on board. Thanks.

    Is there any way not to get produce from mexico since they do not have any regulation on what they can use for soil???

    How can I get a conf, number to participate in getting food when it is available?

    A couple weeks ago I ordered an add-on; I think it was the Italian Pack. I was told it didn’t come on the truck and I would receive a credit. I never did. I sent Bountiful Baskets an email using their web inquiry and never received a reply. Could someone from Bountiful Baskets please contact me? Or is there a phone number so I can call?

    I first learned of you guys last week and boy do I wish I had heard of you a long time ago, I just got my first basket and can not say enough good about it. I have been on the phone and e-mailing everyone I know and telling them about your co-op. I’m sure you’ll have a bunch of new customers starting next week.
    Thank you for everything that you do.
    Keep up the great job.

    I can’t find on your website about how many pounds the baskets are, can you tell me?

  15. Aspen Morrow says:

    There is fresh, local Raw milk available in Idaho now…I thought this might be something that bountiful baskets might be interested in getting for the members. If we can sell 25 gallons per week we can get it for $6 per gallon and it would save us quite a bit from buying it from the few stores who carry it. Don’t know if this might be an option to consider, just thought I would bring it up as a new member.

    RE: veggie origin
    So, if you’re going to get out of season stuff, could you at least get good tasting stuff?? The anemic tomatoes in today’s basket are just sad. Get the cherry or grape tomatoes this time of year, as they actually taste good. And, the corn is somewhat questionable, as it is clearly not in season…. if it’s not in season, except for tomatoes, then skip it!!
    Thanks!

    Hi! We are in the process of getting a site started in Missoula, Montana. I was looking through your list of states above and where everything comes from. Have you ever considered using MT farms? I am getting that question from a lot of people here. They want to know if and when produce will come from Montana locals. Just curious, thanks!!

    Hi, I have been participating in bountiful baskets for almost a year now and have really enjoyed the selection bur over the last two months it seems to be getting slimmer less quality fruits and veggies and more ordinary cheap ones like potatoes and carrots and iceberg lettuce and I have never received honey as stated above as one of Utah’s contributions. So when does the honey come???

    Can I get the nutrition information on the honey wheat bread and the 9 grain bread? Thanks. Melanie
