Is everything you sell grown at A Land of Delight? We offer a wide variety of locally grown & seasonal organic produce, especially those delicious Florida Strawberries. Our local farmers work HARD to bring you the fruits of their labors, and we love supporting their efforts. But in order to maximize our variety and availability while keeping our prices as low as possible, we do supplement our assortment with organic items that are grown by other regional vendors as needed. We make the best effort to indicate within the shop which items are locally grown, to help you make the best choice for your family. You can view all of our current local items within the open order cycle by clicking HERE. We do not currently offer any conventional (non-organic) produce. I ordered something last cycle and it was GREAT, but now I can't find it? If you ordered something that we regularly stock and suddenly can not find it in our shop, please reach out to us here on the website or message your local Area Coordinator. We're only human, and sometimes we miss an item or two during load day. Sometimes farming in Florida is hard. Between weather, seasons, rainfall and demand, we can't always guarantee that the same items, assortments or units of measure will be used each cycle. We do our best to stay ahead of these issues, and we apologize for any concern. If you'd like to special order an item in bulk reach out to your local co-op Area Coordinator and we will see what we can do! If you know of an item that you'd like to order but can't find, we LOVE suggestions. Send us a note! It's Tuesday, am I too late to order for Friday delivery? In order to make sure that we have the best inventory and lowest pricing possible we ask that all ala carte items be ordered before the cutoff. Sometimes we extend the cutoff date until noon on Tuesday to make up for bad weather or website issues. Sometimes, (if you reach out to your local Area Coordinator in time), we can squeeze in a Farmer's Choice mixed crate or two after the cutoff. If you need help ordering or would like to discuss a different order timeline, feel free to send us a note! Why is the Shop empty? Our Shop Categories are only loaded during the open order periods of each cycle. This helps us keep the most accurate product assortment possible, resulting in lower prices and less wasted time for you, our customer. If you'd like to pre-order a Farmer's Choice mixed crate because of a scheduling conflict we can help with that.
