For almost a year now my family has been receiving a weekly delivery of organic produce from Sunizona Family Farms, a family run farm located near Wilcox, AZ. I LOVE the Farmbox program, and if you're friends with me on Facebook, you've heard me shouting from the rooftops about it for a while now. (If you want to know more about why I love our Farmbox so much, leave me a comment with your email address and I will send you my "pitch"...I'm passionate about this!)
