simple provisions: a convenient way to buy the basics

Remember how grandma used to fondly recall the gentle clink of glass milk bottles on the porch? And the peace of mind achieved by knowing that your basic dairy, egg, and bread needs will be met every other week, without having to get in the car? Chances are, some thoughtful person in your geographic locale may be delivering farm fresh products to your neighborhood for a fair price. If you live in the Twin Cities, and enjoy buying high quality, local products from farmers directly, I urge you to try Simple Provisions. Started up by Carter Beck, a Stillwater, MN resident and locavore extraordinaire, Simple Provisions fills a much needed gap in any sustainably-minded family's food procurement model by delivering a select number of basic products, including milk, butter, eggs, bread, steaks/chops, coffee, and even some produce items.

The model is simple: set up an account via email, deposit some money into it via PayPal, and create a "standing order" of the items you want to receive on a regular basis. Our family has recieved milk, butter, eggs, and bread for nearly 6 months now, and the delivery is now a major event.

From the website:

Simple Provisions is a home delivery service featuring organic milk in returnable glass bottles and other local, sustainable and organic farm products. Weekly delivery to homes in and around the St. Croix Valley, Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Simple Provisions customers enjoy a direct and vital link to local land stewards who practice sustainable, ecological farming. A Simple Provisions delivery serves as a complement to purchases from the local farmers' market or CSA memberships.
