Farm-to-phone app CropSwap launches CropBox subscription service to boost local buying

June 16, 2020

Offering fresh convenience at a time when consumers need it most, CropSwap–which describes itself as “the instacart for local produce”—has launched a subscription service called CropBox.

The farm-to-phone CropSwap app connecting consumers with local farmers and growers currently is offering an assortment of boxes filled with fresh produce, honey, plants, seeds, and more.

Each available CropBox on the CropSwap app is curated by local farmers, growers, and creators, ranging from city vertical farm operations to homeowners with prolific fruit trees.

Subscribers nationwide can pick-up their CropBox locally or have them delivered directly from a nearby grower. Notable farms from both coasts that plan to sell CropBoxes include County Line Harvest and Sow A Heart Farms in Los AngelesNo Spray Hawaii in HawaiiFarm.One in New York City, and Vital Living Sprouts in Miami.

“As consumers shift toward healthier and more eco-conscious lifestyles, CropSwap answers the demand for easy, reliable access to fresh products grown and/or made locally in their area,” says Roberto Reiner, CEO and co-founder of CropSwap. “We are taking the anonymity out of the foods you consume by lifting the curtain on exactly where your produce comes from. Whether it’s lemons monthly or fresh vegetables bi-weekly, there is a CropBox subscription model that works for everyone.”

He told Produce Bluebook, ‘“The impact of this pandemic on our shopping habits has been significant. “It has become more evident than ever of our urgent need for a smarter, more sustainable shared food economy.

To subscribe to a CropBox, simply access the home screen map and select the CropBox filter. Based on location, users may then click on a variety of local CropBoxes to subscribe to. Once selected, they can further customize their subscription by choosing their desired quantity, and frequency at which they’d like to receive their CropBoxes.
