You never know with surprise boxes if they will be good or bad, but this box was a hit! I purchased the March Founder's Crate and was completely surprised by all the goodies inside the box. I'm a huge handmade soap fan, this box had 2 bars of handmade soap and a soap saver (I've been saving all my little bits of handmade soaps, so it is already being used). I've never grown micro greens, but since joining the FL Farm Finder group, I've been wanting to do more gardening, so receiving the micro greens kit was perfect! I thought there were two sets of tea, but one of them was actually an elderberry syrup kit, how fun is that! Plus peach jam and lip balm! I've already ordered the next quarterly crate and can't wait to see what they come up with for summer!
Love the site, so many places and ideas, close to home.
Very happy with the products sent as well as with the ability to help local farmers. I can’t wait for the next box!
What a beautiful present to myself. The items I received are quality and the packaging made me feel so special. I heard of this on our local news and wanted to support our local farmers. I was impressed I told a few friends who ordered crates for Easter Presents. I did a one time purchase. Next time I want to do a bigger crate. When do the next ones come out?
Loved all my local items I received.
I gave it as a gift to my daughter and she love the honey and tea especially. It's an unexpected gift for a fresh items.
Just need to outline the shipping process more clearly. Everything was great , but it wasn’t really clean when things would ship
My first purchase was the Afternoon Tea local discovery box and I loved it! Such a pretty presentation and really nice quality items. Looking forward to my next box.
I got the spring crate for my sister who had lost her husband. Flowers and plants are nice but as her sister, I felt she needed something different from me, She was so pleased and surprised!
When opening the box it smelled heavenly! Everything was so beautifully packaged. We've not tried the teas yet but if they are half as good as they smell, we're in business!
Great selection as always! The soap smells so good, I can smell it every time I walk into the kitchen and the lip balm lasts a long time, even through eating and drinking!
Loved everything in February's Local Discovery Box. Very beautifully packaged & made products.
This box was better than I expected! I read the spoilers before it came and was excited for most of the items, but when it came and I tried everything I was very impressed with the quality and ended up using everything in the box. Can't wait for the next one!
So, my husband purchased this box for me for Christmas 2020. I obviously knew about the box, because I told him that he needed to get it for me. Upon opening it, I was blown away at the visual presentation right off the bat. Everything was arranged so lovely, it was beautiful! The box was full of all the things I would have picked out and some that I probably wouldn't have, but was beyond happy to try out. In the luxury crate, I received (2) bars of handmade soap... yes, you read that right, 2 of them! Also a handmade soy candle, some whole coffee beans (I didn't even know there was coffee made in Florida), a huge pouch of local honey, some seasonings... and I know there was more stuff, but I'm completely drawing a blank. I definitely feel like I got a great deal on everything and I am super excited to try out everything. We've already started the candle and it's lovely. I tend to be a handmade soap hoarder, so those babies will be in hiding until I use up some of the others I have. The coffee was wonderful and has all been ground and used (pretty much immediately). There was also a little keychain, which is now on my keys, with the logo and QR code to have my friends link back to the Facebook page. I can't even tell you how many people are just as new as I am to finding out that Florida has farms and all kinds of things I've only ever gotten from the grocery store. I highly recommend this crate and can't wait to purchase another one!
I purchased this box as a gift for Christmas. It was so much better than I could have ever imagined. There was a wide variety of items and something for everyone! The holiday box had coffee, a candle, spices, honey, soap, and even a little keychain. For the price, you are definitely getting a bargain and you get to try out items that you may never have known about! Plus, handmade, duh!
