Locavoraciousness just got a little easier with the spring launch of Farmhouse Delivery, a harvest-to-home service bringing fresh local, sustainable fare from area farms and eateries straight to your door or workplace.
Hop online and browse the bodacious bounty that includes pastured meats from Loncito’s Lamb, Bastrop Cattle Company, Thunder Heart Bison and Dewberry Hill; delectable artisan cheeses, milk and butter from Remember When Dairy, Wateroak Farms, Full Quiver Farm and Veldhuizen; bakery goodies ranging from sour cherry scones and other scrumptious dolci by former Vespaio baker Barrie Cullinan, to Texas French Bread ciabatta and Paqui tortillas; the season’s peak fruits such as apples from Bat Creek Farm in Bertram and citrus fruits from G & S Groves in the Valley.
Also available are pantry must-haves like Texas Olive Ranch olive oil, Co-op Coffee and organic jams—plus gourmet-worthy veggies galore, fresh from several local farms including Rain Lily, the organic digs of Farmhouse Delivery co-creator Stephanie Scherzer.
Farmhouse’s ordering options include a “farm bushel” of around 10 seasonal veggies, or an “epicurean farm bushel” that features everything in the farm bushel but also tucks in exotic fare such as fava beans, artichokes or pesto. Add additional grocery items if you wish, and depending on your particular delivery day, the order is headed your way, packaged to stay fresh until you get home. Farmhouse co-creator Elizabeth Winslow will even throw in some enticing cooking ideas and recipes honed from her expertise as a chef, restaurateur and forager.
Winslow and Scherzer say the mission behind Farmhouse Delivery is simply to connect people with good food and good agriculture. To that end, they’re upping the fun quotient with regular get-togethers like every other Wednesday’s Farmstand Happy Hour, and cooking and gardening classes held at Rain Lily Farm.
