How it works

Thank you for your interest in Home Grown Organic Foods home delivery service of organic produce and natural foods. There is no better way to pave the road to a healthier future that is good for you, good for community and good for the Earth.

This is how it works:

We purchase our produce, groceries and dairy goods in bulk from organic farmers' cooperatives, distributors and individual farmers. Most of our supplies are certified organic, following a stringent set of standards as outlined by the certification body responsible for the certification of individual producers. Click here to review certification standards criteria.

Our main delivery day is on Saturday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Alternatively, you may choose to receive a mid-week delivery between 7:00 to 9:00 pm on Wednesday evening (Halifax residents only). After you sign up for a onetime, lifetime membership of $25.00, you will be eligible to receive a box of fresh, organic produce on a weekly, bi-weekly, tri-weekly, monthly or special basis. If you don’t need the box on a given week, just call or send us an e-mail at least 24 hours prior to the time of your delivery and we will be happy to reschedule your next delivery.

There are a variety of food box options to choose from. The standard boxes are available in four different sizes: single, double, family and clan. In addition, we offer the Dogma box which contains a variety of fruits and vegetables that are strictly local. Most recently, we have added a fruit box to our food box list.

To accomodate various palettes we request that you inform us of any fruit or vegetable allergies / dislikes / preferences so that our sorters can do the best job possible tailoring your food box to meet your needs.

Custom ordering is now available. In the shopping area, you will find a complete listing of all the produce items that are currently available. You may select items from this list to include with your order. Please note that a 5 dollar delivery charge applies to all custom orders, regardless of the order amount.

In addition to our fruit and vegetable boxes, we also offer a wide range of organic groceries, fresh-baked bread, home made pizza, fresh prepared soups, a number of tofu products, organic dairy products, desserts and more. To search for your favourite food product try out our product search engine.

We accept cash, check, debit, Email money transfers, Visa or Mastercar. We require payment in advance or upon delivery. If payment is not made in advance, we require that a VISA or MC be submitted as security during the registration process. If a box is left without payment or agreement thereof, we will automatically charge it to the credit card on file.

In order to respond to all of your questions, our database has been designed to easily update customer order requests to avoid delivery errors, as much as possible. If for any reason you wish to speak with one of our customer care specialists, please call 492-1412 (dial 0 to speak with an organic food specialist) Wednesday to Friday, 1-7, or by e-mail to orders@hgof.ns.ca

As with all things in nature, nothing is absolute. Here at Home Grown Organic Foods, we aim to deliver with complete customer satisfaction guaranteed. So if for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with the service that you are receiving, please contact us and we will do our best to look after your concerns.

Anytime you refer us to a friend who signs up for a regular delivery, we say thank you with a complimentary honey bear from Cosman and Whidden.
