Fresh Produce To Your Door
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
I’ve been receiving messages from some of our readers/viewers who is either recovering from a recent injury or being too busy with scheduling and therefore is in need of assistance. This post is to help you either to save time or strength in picking out fresh organic produce from the store to be brought back home. Time has certainly changed. Door to door services are growing as more and more people will be living longer and healthier.
- Orlando Organics (OO), 47 Drennen Road, Orlando, FL, 407-522-1502: This is a family owned and operated organic produce delivery service established in 2002. OO works with a network of organic growers to deliver super-fresh, seasonal organic produce delivered straight to your door. There is no annual membership cost or hidden fees.

- Harvill’s Produce Co, 8775 S. Orange Ave., Orlando, FL , 407-843-4331, Specializing in vine ripe tomatoes, Harvill’s also features California leafy items, Idaho potatoes, Washington apples, Sunkist citrus, Driscoll strawberries and Saratoga dressings. Their refrigerated delivery trucks deliver six days a week throughout the greater Orlando area, helping their customers to get the fresh produce their restaurants need at affordable prices. This is how they work. Harville’s Produce Co. delivery service only deals with businesses rather than individual homes and the minimum order has to be 8 cases. For individuals who want to purchase from Harvill’s Produce Co. they would have to go to 8775 S. Orange Ave., Orlando, FL themselves.
If you don’t need to pay until you’ve received the items, it is not as critical (that’s why it is nice to shop at the local farmer’s market). For all online businesses you’re contemplating dealing with or ordering from for the first time, I’d recommend checking with sunbiz.org (for state of Florida) and respective state, county (for Orange County, check out www.octaxcol.com ), and city government to make sure that these virtual businesses are real.
Let me know if you’ve come across any other fresh and/or organic produce delivery service. Give these businesses a try and let me know what you think of them. As we are all living longer and healthier, I imagine there will be more and more companies providing delivery services of all kinds. We, as consumers, need to be wiser in dealing with the virtual world. With your help, Windermere Sun is here to help all of us to be better informed.
