Education

We teach our network of farmers and artisans how to reach their market potential while keeping their products as natural as possible. We also offer expert food and nutrition content to our serviced communities.

Agriculture Icon
Agriculture

The production of food is at the very heart of what we do. We don’t just distribute it to our members, we grow it on two certified organic farms: Feel Good Farm (Sheridan, IN) and EcOhio Farm (Mason, OH).

Nutrition Icon
Nutrition

We aim to restore the importance of healthy, nutritious food to our society as a whole by creating ways to affordably and conveniently grow and distribute food.


We own and operate two organic farms

Don’t forget that food comes from a farm! Our certified organic farming operations grow a variety of organic produce for our Green BEAN Delivery members. At the top of our priorities is the stewardship of our top soil and overall health of our farm. Our belief is that proper nutrition starts on the farm. We grow food that is nutrient-dense, fresh, and makes you FEEL GOOD!

We give back to the communities we serve.

Green BEAN Delivery is proud to be plugged into each community it serves. Local is woven into our DNA as a company, and we strive to make a difference in the community as a whole by partnering with people and organizations that align with our values and goals. Together, we make powerful teams that accomplish tremendous amounts of good for everyone.

FARMERS & ARTISANS

At the heart of our food business are the farmers and artisans in and around each city that make up the local food community. We search for vendors with unique and quality products who align with our food philosophy. This type of cooperative relationship is mutually beneficial and serves to strengthen the local food economy.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Green BEAN Delivery believes in supporting the communities that support us. We partner with anti-hunger organizations to increase the flow of fruits, vegetables, and grocery items into emergency food assistance programs. Whether it’s through our zero-waste produce donations to anti-hunger organizations, our Constant Canned Food Drive, or partnerships with local NPR stations; we actively seek to make sustainably grown, healthy food more readily available in the communities we serve.
