Does anyone have any experience with this? They're the Groupon today and it seems almost too good to be true. I was wondering if anyone has any previous insights. Thanks!

    We've gotten the deliveries for the past few years every other week (I hate to grocery shop). Winter is generally not very local produce (not much grows in cold weather after all), which turned off some of my friends who canceled. I like it and have been pleased with the quality overall. Even better is the milk/meat/dairy deliveries we get from South Mountain Creamery (best milk, butter, buttermilk, and ground beef).

      I haven't tried the veggies, but we regularly get milk and eggs and love that. I also get stew beef for stews. We've been tempted on other meats but haven't gone there yet. Oh, and we've had their yogurt, which is also good.

      If you set up a regular delivery, you can always cancel or change week by week.

      We haven't gotten the veggies because in the summer we have our own garden and of course the local farmers' market. In the winter it's not worth it because nothing is local.

      But I can speak highly of their dairy products. The milk is awesome -- the 2% tastes like whole milk and the skim milk doesn't look like blue water. It stays fresh a VERY long time. The half and half has spoiled me for any other kind, even Trickling Springs.

      Have to admit I don't care for their colby. REALLY bland. But maybe I just don't like Colby.

      The butter has a higher fat content than most regular butter, which is great for baking.

      The eggs are very good as well! Nice sturdy shells. The large eggs are really almost extra large size if you measure them in a cup measure.

      HTH!
