Farm TO table Program
The Alvarez Organic Farms Wholesale Program is dedicated to connecting our farm fresh produce to premiere restaurants, CSA's, Grocers and Co-Ops. We began with the idea of taking the worry out of buying from a produce broker and having no idea where your food will come from or how long its been in a warehouse. Buying directly from a farmer means you get the peace of mind, that your food comes from the same place every time and is picked fresh just for you. By cutting the middleman, we can offer some of the highest quality produce at a reasonable price. At Alvarez Organic Farms, we believe vegetables should be a health benefit, not a health concern, which is why all our produce is certified Organic. Getting the full flavor out of your recipes is important, a good chef, like a good farmer will tell you "freshness makes all the difference" . We focus on getting the freshest produce to our wholesale customers, don't your customers deserve the same?
The Fresh Sheet is a semi-weekly bulletin that displays the upcoming produce we will have available throughout the season. It's our way of keeping you connected to what's harvesting in our fields. It gives you an opportunity to have your produce set aside before it's even been harvested. Fresh Sheets can be emailed and faxed. Fresh Sheets are updated frequently. Orders can be placed as soon as your receive a fresh sheet. We encourage orders be placed ahead of time as it allows us to fulfill order in a timely and organized manner
We take great pride in what we grow, that's why we feel like personally delivering our produce to the people that show the same passion for food is the most important step. At Alvarez Organic Farms since your trusting us for quality, we would never trust anybody to transport our produce for us. To many things can go wrong during transportation, deliveries from Alvarez Organic Farms ensure your produce get handled gently throughout the delivery process. Our days of delivery are every Tuesday and Friday in Seattle and South King County, Wednesday and Saturday in East King County, and Saturday in Tacoma. Depending on your location transportation fees may be added. Orders of $100 and over are eligible for free delivery.
To receive your order in a timely manner, we ask that all orders be placed a full 24 hrs. in advanced. The deadline to place an order correlates with the days we deliver produce. For Tuesday delivery order deadline is Midnight, Sunday and for Friday delivery order deadline is Midnight, Wednesday. For all orders placed after deadline, we will notify you whether or not your order could be fulfilled depending on our workload.
Billing is handled on a 15 day net terms. We invoice both paper and electronically through email, occasionally only electronic to cut down on paper usage. There is a shared-responsibility for the customer to keep an updated email to receive and keep track of invoices and get them payed in a prompt manner. We are not responsible for sending out payment reminders for overdue invoices. All overdue accounts will be sent a full summary with a copy of all overdue invoices at the end of our growing season (October).
