Frequently Asked Questions
We all know we are supposed to eat good, natural, fresh, and in-season produce. But how do you actually do that? Here is your answer: Sara and Lara’s basket! Here is the deal; we choose only the freshest most nutritious vegetables, fruits and herbs, place them in a big basket, which we bring to your doorstep every week. We only send you food when it’s in season and we only send you what is fresh.
It means that you get what we grow organic at our farm and what we source from responsible growers close by, hassle free every week!
That you may need to learn some new recipes because what is in the basket changes according to the season!
We make two lines of produce one is Sara’s Organic Food the other is Lara’s Premium Produce. Sara’s is organic (EC Organic Certified) and Lara’s is premium, grown by responsible growers without the use of harmful pesticides. Anything from Sara’s is home grown at Sara’s farm. Lara’s premium produce comes from trusted neighbouring farms, but adheres to strict sourcing quality control and random testing to make sure that it is indeed healthy, clean and safe. In short, the basket is a mix of organic and premium produce.
Part of eating fresh and in season means giving up a little choice. We think it is well worth it and hope you agree! Choose your weekly basket size and it will be sent to you with the best the season has to offer, hassle free.
You can also compose your own basket by ordering online – pick and choose the fresh organic and premium produce you’d like to have in your basket. For customized orders the minimum order amount is the same as our small basket.
Yes! You can compose your own basket and choose only Sara’s Organic Food items to fill your basket.
Baskets are made by workers in the Monufia in the north part of Egypt in the Nile Delta using a natural, reusable material. Their production is supporting a family run business and traditional craft.
Your produce is brought to your home in a natural reusable basket ‘naked’ to minimize waste. No need for plastic bags and shiny labels, it’s kinder to our environment – get to know your food and you will not need the labels anymore (and you will soon be a pro at telling parsley from coriander).
Nope! Theoretically you could just pay for a basket one time. Return the old undamaged basket with your new delivery and we will deduct the basket charge from your new bill. Of course if you want to keep your baskets that is fine too (they have thousands of uses!) and you will be supporting a labour-intensive trade to boot.
You can order and sign up here. Once you sign up and order we will bring you your basket every Monday and Wednesday according to where you live. Upon delivery you will pay for your organic veggies for the week plus a basket, which you can return the following delivery day to use again for your next delivery.
We deliver to each area one day a week, as it’s the most efficient way to get farm-to-home produce with the least amount of emissions. For customized baskets the minimum order amount is the same as our small basket.
