Farmstead: online-only grocery delivery service

I’m giving this a try. They’re online only, warehouse to consumer direct delivery. Orders are packed and delivered by W-2 employees with benefits. Selection is a bit limited but there’s a lot of quality stuff and prices are slightly lower than Berkeley Bowl. If you order at least $35 a week there’s no delivery charge. First order you can get $40 off if you order at least $75.

Currently SF Bay Area and Charlotte, NC.

Got our first order, got everything, no mistakes. This business model makes so much more sense than Instacart’s.

They have an option to recycle the packaging. Put bags / ice pack / returnable bottles in the delivery box and leave it on the porch to be picked up with the next delivery.

I think these guys may be out of business.
