Off The Vine—All Organic All the Time
Mar 02, 2013 05:54PM
This year Off the Vine, based in Fort Walton Beach, is celebrating their 11th year of bringing fresh organic produce to their customers. Co-owner Shana Wolf believes in supporting not only the local farmers and ranchers, but also the cooks at home. “We love what we do. It’s better for you to cook at home, as it is the most cost-effective way to eat organic food. You give yourself the highest nutritional content and the cleanest fruits and vegetables available when you choose all organic,” she says.
Off the Vine (OTV) operates a delivery service in 14 southern cities. Their unique system requires no upfront costs, long-term commitments or set schedules. Customers simply order fresh organic produce during any week according, to their individual needs. In addition to vegetables and fruits, OTV also offers locally sourced honey, a large selection of raw and organic nuts and seeds, nut butters, hemp products, nut milk bags and other staple organic pantry items. With the OTV Produce Organic Share program, buyers may choose either a home delivery or a convenient partner pick-up location in the buyer’s area.
OTV produce is free of pesticides, fillers, chemicals and preservatives. The weekly produce selection is posted every Friday at noon on the website and by email. Orders should be placed by midnight each Sunday to receive boxes on the following Wednesday. Orders can be picked up in Pensacola, Pace/Milton, Gulf Breeze, Navarre, Ft Walton Beach, Destin or Panama City. OTV will also deliver to the customer’s home.
Recently added to the OTV menu is a new juice box selection. Similar to the mixed box, a box of fruits and vegetables perfect for juicing is available on a weekly basis. The selection is intended to offer contents for a glass of juice once a day for a week. Contents include 10 to 12 different items that may include carrots, kale, spinach, celery, ginger, apples and other selections.
