Every now and then I mention that I get my greens delivered to me each week and a few people always ask me for the hook-up, so I thought I’d share the information in one spot once and for all; especially since I have now come across other companies that deliver farm-fresh goods to you wherever you are in Jamaica!
This is one of my smaller deliveries from my original farm delivery, one clamshell of mixed greens and a pound of button mushrooms. How do these things work? All of them that I have come across thus far send out an email each week with what’s available, you make your order and voila! Farm fresh to your door!
Food Basket Delivery
Food Basket is my original delivery straight from the farm. The people from the now popular EITS Cafe own a farm, guesthouse and restaurant way up in the hills of the Blue Mountain which I’ve visited a couple of times. The food is spectacular as you would expect coming straight from the farm to your table! The restaurant has a Facebook page here, which though isn’t updated often, gives you a couple views of what they offer.
I always get their mixed greens clamshell from their Food Basket delivery service along with a selection of herbs, whether parsley, cilantro, black mint, french thyme, basil, chives, oregano etc. They also sell bananas, plantains, sweet peppers, scotch bonnet peppers, cho-cho, turnip, mushroom, radishes, carrots as well as herbed infused dressings, oils and butters.
They have incredible prices and variety! To sign up with Food Basket, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to their email list to get their weekly newsletter.
2018 update* Food Basket now delivers custom salads each week along with other goodies from their farm. Click here to see one of their newsletters sent out in April 2018.
I have not utilised the services of Grierfield Farms as yet but their produce boxes on Facebook look so good! This farm is located in Moneague, St. Ann and also deliver their fresh goods islandwide. They grow and deliver produce such as kale, spinach, swiss chard, carrots, arugula, black mint, eggs, fruits and even chickens reared on their farm. Click here to see a recent newsletter from them to get an idea of produce available and prices.
This one isn’t about the greens and the yams, it’s what you eat them with!

This seems to be a farm or market delivery service instead of delivery from one farm. I’ve reached out to the operators for more info but until then, you can find them here.
