Today Square Roots is launching Farm To Local — a new way to get freshly harvested, tasty greens delivered directly to you by a local farmer.

Anyone in New York City can sign up simply at squarerootsgrow.com and become a member of Farm to Local. From there, one of the incredible Square Roots farmer-entrepreneurs will bring a curated selection of their freshest greens directly to your desk at work (or any other community hub you request) on a weekly basis.

The greens are delivered in handy grab-bag sizes — making them a perfect snack, or the basis of a healthy, tasty, single portion meal.

Unlike most super market food, which has typically been traveling for weeks before you buy it, Square Roots farmer-entrepreneurs can harvest the same day as delivery — meaning our food is ultra fresh and absolutely delicious.

That’s in part because our farm is located in the middle of Brooklyn, and is indoors. We can grow gmo-free, spray-free, super tasty food all year round — even when there’s two feet of snow on the ground. You’ve never tasted anything like it.
