Our processes and materials used change with the seasons, weather patterns and other local factors. For instance, during the hot summers of Austin, we use extra, high quality insulation in our packaging that keep ingredients cold/frozen even when exposed to the hot sun. We may also suggest that you put out a cooler into which we can leave the deliveries.
We source the freshest, most humanely raised, local and sustainable animal products – details of which will be included with each recipe.

We know it, because we grow it, and it’s as fresh as it can get. We bring amazing new flavors & medicinal benefits to our recipes by incorporating rare herbs and plant varieties we grow in our farms.

Composting, Built In
Use our empty containers as compost bins for the rest of the week. All that rich organic material comes back to us when we pick up the Bag, gets composted in our facilities, and then goes into our Farms as fertilizer. A perfect cycle that results in less going into the landfill, nutrient-dense produce and low prices for you.

From the Lettuce Blog
We were surprised when the cucumbers we received from a farm in Texas came individually shrink-wrapped before going into our deliveries. Unfortunately, this represents some of what is wrong with
“When you talk about farmstead cheese, this is about as farmstead as it gets.”
Each week, the Lettuce Orchard Basket gets delivered with a blurb by Lettuce’s Sourcing Manager, Leslie Nelms. Seasonal eating can be particularly tricky when limited to a category like fruit,
“It’s kind of like your birthday and Christmas all wrapped up into one.”
Lettuce is more than our delicious, zero waste meal kits – it’s urban agriculture, a platform for local food and a composting service all rolled into one.
“I feel that lettuce is well-positioned to grab some of that [sustainable food] demand, so I wanted to invest in a company that would take advantage of that trend.”
