Holiday Gift Idea: Fresh Local Produce

The holiday season can be a stressful time of year – deciding what gifts to buy, braving the malls to find these gifts, and hoping friends and relatives will like them.

And it doesn’t help that the holidays often come with the consumption of cookies, cakes, candies, etc.

But what about giving a healthy gift option? How about the gift of fresh local produce? A gift that will seem like a trip to the Farmers’ Market without leaving the house?

A company on Maui has the right idea.

Kula Fields provides boxes of locally grown produce to your loved ones, complete with holiday tissue paper and a greeting card.

Started by owner Roxanne Tiffin, who holds a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, Kula Fields brings the Farmers’ Market to your door. They’ve cultivated relationships with local farmers to provide the freshest produce and use a majority of organic and sustainable fruits and vegetables.

“You can also add locally produced gourmet grocery items or opt for a gift certificate instead,” says Roxanne. “With Kula Fields Holiday gift options…we’ve got you covered.”

The holiday boxes come in Small, Medium or Large and are filled with a variety of fruits and vegetables complete with a freshness guarantee.

All you have to do is decide what size box to send, the delivery date, and the message inside the card.

They wrap, they deliver, they do the work so  you can sit back and enjoy that eggnog. Or maybe a salad…

A foodie from a young age, she loves trying meals from around the world and does her best to travel and dine on a budget. Originally from Los Angeles, Nadine and her husband stored 95% of their belongings and moved to Maui with two suitcases in 2006. She is an avid cook and while she loves living on the island, she will admit she misses some of her kitchen appliances in storage. When she’s not baking a cake or out on the water, she can be found at her computer working on her novel.

  1. This *is* a really great idea, especially as a gift idea for friends and family who doesn’t necessarily buy local/organic produce often themselves – it’s hard to argue the different when one is biting into it. And the service listed looks pretty convenient, too! But the quality that organic practices yield is why all our grapes are farmed and harvested sustainably (we have to wonder if that’s also one of the reasons our wines are so highly rated, such as the 2006 Cab, which was on Wine Spectator’s top 20 of 2010); a bottle of Hall would go quite well with a fresh produce gift for this reason, and because, you know, your giftee is bound to get thirsty. In any case, good post, I should look into something like this for a few people I still need to buy for.
