Enjoy Your Produce

We’ll choose the best in-season produce to include in each tote.

Summer Tote Program

Take the guesswork out of knowing what the best-tasting, in-season produce is each month of the summer. With over 90 years of experience growing fruits and veggies, we fill our weekly and monthly tote boxes with sweet corn and tomatoes at just the right times during the season to ensure freshly harvested quality. 97% of past program participants tell us the tote boxes have high-quality produce. Sourcing directly from our fields and farmers allows us to have some of the freshest fruits and veggies around. Be surprised every tote with a great new selection of items to try.

Recipes for Your Veggies

Not sure what to make with beets or kale that your kids will actually eat? Our staff provide you with a new recipe in your email each week to go along with the produce in your tote.

​​What Past Participants Say
“We like the winter tote program, as it actually introduced us to some fresh items we had never tried. We loved having the recipes to use for these items and the items we had used before. We just like the freshness of what we get in the totes and always know the items will be tasty!”
​​What Past Participants Say
“The tote program caused us to eat more vegetables than we might otherwise so we weren’t wasting food. What a great “problem” to have!”
​​What Past Participants Say
“I am so glad our family participated in the Tuttles Tote Program! Getting the tote each week was a little like Christmas – we couldn’t wait to get home to see what fruits and veggies we received. The tote program gave us the opportunity to introduce many new foods to our one-year-old daughter – we were amazed to find that she loved beets!”
​​What Past Participants Say
“Have participated in both programs so far and absolutely love the offerings and convenience! Thanks for the offering!”
​​What Past Participants Say
