Terra Organics delivers to Joint Base Lewis-McChord

Community-supported agriculture delivered to your doorstep

By Kim Thompson on January 23, 2014

For many of us, starting out a new year means healthy lifestyle changes and choices, and a big component of that is healthy eating. Fresh, seasonal, organically grown local produce is one of the most important staples of a healthful diet for the whole family.

So imagine this: having that beautiful and delicious produce delivered right to your doorstep.

Fortunately for South Sound residents, this is a reality.

Terra Organics is a produce delivery company that provides fresh, locally and regionally grown organic produce. It also offers high-quality eggs, grains and coffee products. The company has been on the forefront of producing and delivering high-quality organic foods throughout the South Puget Sound since it began in 2003.  Its comprehensive website has an intuitive online order form and features important updates, news, recipes and new product announcements. Need a unique and healthy gift for a friend or family member? Gift certificates are available for purchase online.

Sound interesting? Well, it gets better.

In the past, Terra Organics customers who lived on base at Joint Base Lewis-McChord were required to pick up their produce boxes at a nearby community pick-up site in Lakewood. The company is proud to announce that effectively immediately, servicemembers and their families living on base can have Terra Organics products delivered right to their doors.

Those who live on JBLM can sign up for the service immediately by visiting the Terra Organics website. Simply click "Order a Box," then select "JBLM" as the delivery location before proceeding with the rest of the registration.  The company delivers to JBLM on Fridays.

Terra Organics co-founder Dan Hulse is thrilled to bring the company's products directly to JBLM.

"Adding Joint Base Lewis-McChord to our service territory means that residents on the base can enjoy the benefits of receiving fresh, organic produce delivered right to their doors," Hulse said. "We are proud to be able to support military families - both on and off base - who want to make health and nutrition a priority and add convenience to their lives at the same time."

Here's how to get started.

Once you visit the website and select where to have the produce delivered (home, office or at a local community drop-off site), select a produce box type.  There are many to choose from, including various mixes of fruits and vegetables; boxes that are exclusively fruit or exclusively vegetables; boxes perfect for families and children; and customizable boxes. Next, select either the small or large box of produce and how frequently to have it delivered. The final steps are payments and additional customizable options.
