Enjoy Your Produce

We'll choose the best tasting, 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 Tuttle's fields and supplementing with other local farmers allows us to have some of the freshest fruits and veggies around. We bring in fresh out-of-state fruits from farms we know and trust. This allows us to include items that grow better in other climates, such as Michigan blueberries and South Carolina peaches. 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.

Registration opens in January for the summer season.

What would my small tote include?

Smaller portion of 4-5 seasonal produce items.
Recommended for 1-2 people who love produce or a family who only cook a few times a week.

What would my large tote include?

Standard portion of 6-8 seasonal produce items.
Recommended for a family of 3-6 people who like produce or 1-2 people who love produce, like to cook at home, or try new recipes.

The large tote will receive items the small tote might not get during the season. Portions of items will often be larger than the small tote (for example the small tote might have 3 ears of corn and the large might have 6 ears in the tote. The small might have a pint of blueberries and the large might have a quart).

Monthly Tote

Designed for those who have busy summers and might not be home to cook or eat produce every week. It’s also a great fit for those who want to have some produce for the summer but don't need new items weekly. The monthly tote also includes a freshly baked item from our Café and an artisan food product.

There are two options, the monthly totes don’t have “vacation weeks”. Please choose the option with the dates that will work best with your schedule. You can sign up for BOTH options if desired, as contents will often be different.

Pickup Dates: Thursdays –
Option 1 (Green): June 6, June 27, July 25 and August 15

What would my monthly box include?

1 bakery item fresh from Tuttle’s Café, such as Donuts, Zucchini Bread, Fruit Breads or Muffins.

​​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
“The program was fun, had lots of good veggies and fruits, and we looked forward to picking up the totes each week. Thanks for doing this program.”
