You May Never Have To Leave The House Again


With just an Internet hook-up and a phone line, almost anything you want or need can be ordered and delivered right to your home or office: movies, music, electronics, furniture and even your groceries. Recently, we told you about a new service ( offering eggs, milk, bread and various other sundries. But man and woman cannot live on homemade cake alone, and now you can get your daily allowance of fresh produce dropped on your doorstep.

According to its Web site, Brown Box Organics Company (BBOC) offers "seasonal and gourmet produce year round. All of our produce is Certified Organic. We provide local organic produce whenever possible and bring you the very freshest produce possible. Our produce is never stored on market shelves in varied temperatures, under fluorescent lighting or in the changing temperatures at the stand. It is cooled at the farm and we pack your order the day of your delivery."

BBOC has a wide selection of veggies--from acorn squash and broccoli to yellow onions and zucchini--and you can order from a list of pre-selected variety boxes or make your own custom box. Along with all the organic produce available, they also offer a whole host of healthy "pantry staples" and gourmet food items: kalamata olives and ciabatta breads, organic and locally roasted Dawson Taylor coffees, mushroom soup, olive oil, almonds, snack packs, honey, flour and more.

The BBOC­­ delivers around the Treasure Valley and though it's not inexpensive, can you really put a price on munching on a fresh, organically grown apple while you watch a NetFlix movie and wait for the UPS truck to show up with your newly ordered iPod? We think not.
