How It Works

We want each box to be flexible with your lifestyle.  We designed our RAREBoxes to provide delicious, healthy and quick food for 4 days of the week (e.g., Monday - Thursday), allowing you to go out of town or dine out for the weekend without feeling guilty about not eating half of the vegetables you bought at a Farmer's Market or traditional CSA. 

All prepared foods are made with the ingredients available that week on the farm or in the area (at other chemical-free farms).  Food is harvested 48 hours or less before you receive a RAREBox, ensuring the highest nutrient content.  No artificial chemicals have EVER been used on our Farm, and all prepared foods are gluten-free, use only grass-fed dairy (if required), are cooked at low temperatures and ONLY use grass-fed butter, avocado oil and coconut oil as fats.

The information below is how we HOPE to manage things in the future.  For 2022, THIS IS HOW IT WORKS: 

1) We contact you to see if you would like a Box

2) You confirm your Box at least FIVE (5) DAYS before the delivery date listed on the homepage  (under 'This Month's RARE Box')

3)  2-3 days before the delivery date (listed on the home page), we contact you to arrange a delivery method & time that works for both parties (group meet-up point or home delivery) and we collect payment (cashapp, venmo, check, cash) when you recieve your Box.

We are using this first year to figure out how to optimize our logistics in a manner that is most convenient and inexpensive for you! Thank y'all so much for your support and we are so happy to be able to truly nourish our friends, family and community.

Price Comparison

We used online menus of Atlanta area restaurants and online specialty baked items to create a general price comparison of the food items to the RARE-Box.  Keep in mind, the superior nutritional and flavor profiles of our farm food has not been included in the comparison.  The website is still being updated so this information may not be exactly on point.  If anything, the value of the Box has only increased.
