THE NEW FOOD BOX makes eating healthy fun!

Ashley Tyrner, founder of Farmbox Direct, and her 8-year old daughter Harlow, CEO of Harlow’s Harvest, are bringing families together through food. Ashley has gone from being a single mom on food stamps to the CEO of a national brand that aims to eradicate the overwhelming food desert problem in America. Her company, Farmbox Direct is a door-to-door service that brings the freshest vegetables and fruits directly from organic farms. To make lives easier, Farmbox Direct also provides quick and easy recipes all on their site to use with the freshest product that would be delivered each week, saving user’s time and allowing them to maintain a healthier lifestyle.

After Ashley became a mother, she really began to pay very close attention to exactly what was in the food that not only she was eating, but also what she was feeding her self-proclaimed vegan daughter. She was a typical busy NYC working mom and didn’t always have time to make a weekly trip to her local farmer’s market to pick up the fresh produce nor did she have the money to do so. It was during this time in her life where she began to realize the true need for a service such as Farmbox Direct. People needed access to convenient and affordable fresh fruits and vegetables and Ashley rose to the occasion. Farmbox Direct is successfully filling a void in the clean food industry as the company is a multi-million-dollar revenue generating business and is proud to have former White House Chef and Senior Policy Adviser to Michelle Obama, Sam Kass, as a member of the team. Ashley has created partnerships with Michelle Obama’s Move Campaign, and speaks around the country on health, wellness, food, and entrepreneurship. http://www.farmboxdirect.com

I received a sample box and was quite impressed! The fruits and vegetables were so fresh and there was such a variety! What a fun and healthy way to enjoy food with your children!

Harlow, a self-proclaimed vegan since she was two years old, knows a thing or 20 about food thanks to her mom. Some kids want to try on their mom’s shoes, but Harlow wanted to follow in her mother’s footsteps and pass on what she has learned to bring the same quality product as FarmBox Direct to other kids in the hopes of them taking better control of their nutrition. She founded Harlow’s Harvest with Ashley so that parents and kids can make cooking together fun, interactive, and educational. Harlow’s Harvest is a monthly subscription box that comes with recipe cards, a science project, background on the dish your child would be making, and an online game they can play that is connected to that month’s theme. Through cooking, kids get to practice reading recipes, calculating the costs of food, and working on their fractions by measuring ingredients. It teaches kids basic life skills at a young age and gives them an appreciation for real food. https://www.harlowsharvest.com/
