Oxford Garden Fresh Box!
The Oxford Garden Fresh Box is about getting great value and variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, while supporting our local farmers! Anyone can purchase a box for either $12 or $17. This is a local not-for-profit project that started in the Town of Ingersoll and now has grown to involve partners from around Oxford County.
How Does it Work?
- Once a month, by the last day of the month, you can buy a voucher for a $12 or $17 box of fresh and local (as much as possible) fruits and vegetables.
- On the second Tuesday of each month you bring along your voucher and a bag or box to the specific location to pick up your box of produce. Each month there is a different variety of fruits and vegetables and we include a newsletter with information and dietitian approved recipes for you to try.
- We buy the produce in bulk and often at wholesale prices so you get great value for your money! We purchase from local farmers as much as possible--so you are helping the local economy! You are also helping the the environment by reducing harmful emissions that are associated with the transportation of produce from faraway places!
