I loved Pioneer Organics when I first signed up. We had a box of produce delivered every other week and the quality was always great. The delivery driver was also really helpful and friendly. I had to call a couple times because produce was delivered damaged and they always made it up to me in the next delivery. The produce is preselected by Pioneer Organics and you are allowed to make up to 3 changes and pick alternatives from a list.

The only things I didn't like is that they try too hard to offer variety that I would get all these new and interesting vegetables that I had to be creative with and often wouldn't get the vegetables that I love and my family consistently eats. That either meant going out and buying additional produce and watching some of what was delivered go bad or going without our favorites and knowing that meant we were eating less veggies.

I ended up canceling the service because I felt that I wasn't getting my monies worth if I was still going out to buy the veggies that we liked the most to supplement our delivery. I would go back if I was allowed greater control over the selections.

Also, even though this business is based in Seattle, they do deliver to the Portland area. Check out their website www.pioneerorganics.com

PROS: Good quality, easy to use web site, great customer service
CONS: Not enough control over items delivered each week

This service is excellent! Weekly or biweekly delivery of organic produce to your door. Their website is easy to navigate, and the service allows you to exclude fruits and vegetables you don't like, modify the quantities in your order up to 48 hours before delivery, and they even have an online store where you can order other grocery items to be delivered with your produce.

Delivery is very reliable and the produce is packed well, so even after sitting outside in the box on a hot summer day, it holds up well for the rest of the week.

The option to have biweekly delivery is nice for those that don't consume the produce very quickly. The price is right for the service (though obviously more expensive than buying at the grocery store) and it's really gotten me to try new vegetables and fruits that I wouldn't buy myself.

It's a great way to get in your "5-a-day" without trying too hard. Plus you're supporting local and regional farms.

PROS: unique service, great variety, excellent website
CONS: somewhat expensive compared to grocery store
