A New Way To Get Fresh Baby Food
Farm to Baby delivers handmade purees to your door
It seems fair to say, at this point, that 2012 is the year of subscription services. Over the past six months, dozens of businesses have launched offering regularly scheduled deliveries of beauty products, baby clothes, toys, diapers—and now baby food. Co-founded by a French Culinary Institute grad and a molecular biologist, Farm to Baby delivers fresh, handmade purées to your home on Tuesdays and Fridays, when you sign up for one of their three weekly subscription options: Sit (4-6 months), Crawl (6-9 months), or Toddle (9 months and up). Ingredients are sourced from local farms, and the menu varies each week according to what’s in-season (right now they’re serving up Tokyo turnips and Chiogga Beets, along with the usual carrots, spinach, and pears). Empty jars and insulated bags are collected at each delivery; just be sure someone’s home during your delivery window—they charge 10 bucks to re-deliver.
