FruitShare™ founder Everett Myers has spent a lifetime thinking about food, nutrition and earth-friendly agricultural practices. Fortunately, he has also worked for several years as an organic farmer and later, a produce buyer at a wholesale distributor in Minneapolis, MN.
Here’s what he discovered: conventional shipping and distribution may be slow and unwieldy, but contained within the matrix is a new way of dlivering great tasting, nourishing food to appreciative buyers far removed from orchards and fields.
The secret? Sometimes trucks run partially full, typically back towards home. And sometimes warehouses sit partially full, fully powered and childded but without fresh produce to transfer. And sometimes, worst of all, highly productive organic family growers find themselves with more prime, in-season fruit and produce than their neighbors and closest stores can consume.
FruitShare™ connects the dots: orchard to kitchen, farm to table, organic growers to organic buyers. That’s you - along with hundreds of thousands of like-minded people joining forces to support smarter, more sustainable ways of growing, eating and living.
The amazing thing is, fresh-picked produce is also the most nutritious. Big surprise? Not really. FruitShare™ lets you reserve fruit on the tree or vine - and know with certainty that you’ll get it in days, if not hours, maintaining nutrient values comparable to you picking it yourself.
