Whether you're a city mouse or a country one, there's nothing like eating seasonal, farm-fresh, organic produce to nourish your body. But even those of us lucky to live near famers markets don't always have the time to while away an afternoon squeezing peaches and sampling fresh kale, or even head to the local juice bar. That's why we're so excited about Farmbox Direct
, and the fresh produce delivery service's new line of organic, cold-pressed green juices (available nationally through GILT City
), Farmbox Juice
Each week, Farmbox Juice delivers customized, organic cold-pressed juices straight to your door, as well as a selection of infused teas and waters. A three-juice delivery costs $40
