If you think the only vegetables you can get delivered to your front door has to come on a pizza, think again. A new West Michigan company is bringing farmer's market freshness directly to customers homes.

WZZM reported customer Libby Stuit said "They deliver vegetables that I have never even heard of before and have recipes on their website which is great.  This gave us the opportunity of getting so many fresh vegetables with no pesticides. Things we wouldn't normally try. And we get to support local farmers which I think is wonderful."

The Stuit's decided to let the farmer's market come to them by signing on as one of the first customers for start-up company Doorganics.

Doorganics owner, Mike Hughes, said "All the farmers we work with don't use chemical fertilizers or pesticides and they use sustainable growing practices."

Last week Hughes delivered a bin of produce to the Stuit household with items such as locally grown carrots, squash, broccoli, kale and kohlrabi.

Hughes, started Doorganics in July after noticing what he believes is a unmet demand in the local community. He believes people are not only interested in incorporating healthy food in their daily lives but are equally eager to support Michigan businesses.

"The benefit of buying local is keeping the money in the community," said Hughes. "And I think people are interested in supporting the local food system and if that means helping local farmers and using a service that makes it easy for them I think it is a win-win for everybody. Less shipping time means the product is going to be fresher. We pick it up from the farmer in the morning and it is on your front doorstep in the evening or afternoon."

The company delivers the bins every Wednesday. Hughes says small bins that typically feed a family of 2 to 3 costs $29 a week. Large bins feed a family of 4 to 5 and cost $49 dollars a week.

"Right now you can't pick and choose what items are but we do have recipes on our website to help learn how to prepare them. When you order one of our bins you will receive roughly 7 to 10 things that are in season and produced by our local farmers," said Hughes. "In the next few weeks we will be rolling out our shopping cart so people can add additional items to the weekly or every other week delivery, for instance meats, cheese, eggs or other artisan goods."
