Why should I choose Daily Harvest Express?
You don’t have to, but we’d love it if you do! We are a family owned and operated. We started Daily Harvest out of the necessity we saw to feed our own families well. To us, that means sourcing the best from local farms that grow their food practicing organic methods. I suppose you can call us a ‘mom and pop’ shop, and we aim to do our best at all times. We have a great time doing what we do, and we feel it shows in how we lovingly package the food for your family to eat. Let’s face it, we all ‘plan’ to go to the farmer’s market but life gets in the way. Sign up for our weekly box and we’ll bring the farm to you. Some say it’s like Christmas in a box every week!

Are you a CSA?
No. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA’s) is a farm selling their produce by subscription directly to the consumer. What sets us apart is we gather the produce from various farms. Not every farmer grows all the varieties that we try to provide you in our pre-pack boxes. We attempt to provide you a delicious variety. We do not require you to prepay for any of the food either, you just pay as it gets delivered to you.
Where does the food come from?
We’ve partnered with various farms mostly throughout San Diego County. Since our ingredients change every week, so does the farm. Subscribe to our newsletter and you’ll know what’s in your box and from who.
Is the produce organic?
All of the farms we’ve sourced practice organic farming methods. What does that mean? It means that most of our produce comes from organically certified farmers; however, some of the produce comes from local farm that we have personally verified are already practicing organic farming methods. We choose farms and food artisans that practice sustainability, natural methods and exercise fair employment standards.
We have a wonderful group of farmers and food artisans working with us and are always looking for more! Please let us know if you’re interested or want to recommend someone!
Are there any up-front fees or costs?
No! We don’t require a prepaid subscription, it’s just pay as you go. When you sign up, we do ask you if you want to receive your goodies weekly, biweekly, or monthly. However, you get charged when the food is delivered to you.

I received an item that is not listed on the mix, why?
We do our best to stick to what we say our box ingredients are going to be for the week, however sometimes dear Mother Nature has other plans. For example, a rainstorm can wreak havoc on strawberries. When that happens we have to replace them with another tasty ingredient.
What if I have allergies, can I customize my mix?
So sorry to hear you have allergies. When making your original order, please let us know what you cannot eat. We will omit that from any orders and surprise you with something else. The creation of our box ingredients are preset, so please let us know so we can accommodate your request.
