Who We Are
At Daily Harvest Express, we are the embodiment of a unique journey – one that has traversed the oceans as a Navy veteran and found its anchor in the fertile soils of San Diego County. Our passion for service, community, and wholesome living has led us to cultivate not only the land but also connections between families, farmers, and the earth we all depend on.
Having learned from a Navy Veteran who dedicated years to serving our country, we understand the significance of unity and dedication. Now, as proud supporters of local farms and agriculture, we channel that same dedication into nurturing the land and fostering a sense of togetherness within our community. Our mission extends beyond offering exceptional, locally grown fruits and vegetables; it’s about creating a sustainable bridge between the hands that sow the seeds and the families that enjoy the harvest.
Nestled in the heart of San Diego County, the local farms bring rich agricultural heritage to the region. From the vibrant oranges that capture the essence of a sunny California morning to the crisp greens that evoke the coastal breeze, every piece of produce we offer is a testament to the land’s abundance. By supporting us, you’re not only indulging in the freshest flavors but also empowering local farmers to thrive.
We believe that every bite tells a story – the story of hard work, passion, and a commitment to quality. By choosing Daily Harvest Express, you’re not just nourishing your body, but also joining a movement that celebrates the dedicated individuals who wake up at dawn to tend to the fields, ensuring that the bounty of this land reaches your table with the utmost care.
Join us in supporting local farmers, strengthening community bonds, and embracing the flavors that only a San Diego County harvest can offer. As a Navy veteran turned farmer backed by a passionate team, this journey is a labor of love, a journey that connects our past with our present, and our fields with your plates.
Thank you for being a part of our story and for allowing us to be a part of yours.
With gratitude & a commitment to growth,
Daily Harvest Express

Ever wondered how all those fruits and veggies find their way into your farm box?
It’s quite the process, filled with hard work, challenges and surprises every week. But first, let me tell you why we do it at all…because we LOVE farmers and want to help keep them growing.
Often people think we’re a farm. We’re not. We exist to support hard working farmers by providing an extra stream of revenue and to bring local, organically grown produce to hard working people that can’t get to a physical farmers market.
Is it Local? Is it Organic?
Yes. Yes, mostly. Here’s exactly what we do. We buy directly from farms right here in San Diego like JR Organics, Stehly Farms Organics, Go Green Agriculture and San Gabriel Farms. We also buy direct from farms within a 250 mile radius of our warehouse. Some of our small family farms in our county are not certified organic, such as Dassi Farm, but do not use chemical pesticides and practice sustainable farming methods.
Why do we source outside of San Diego? We want to give you the widest variety of produce available within a few hours drive. While San Diego is great for citrus and avocados, areas like the Central Valley do better with apples and pears because of the climate. Unfortunately, we are losing food producing farms at an alarming rate in our county. We thank you so much for helping us support them and their families.
