FAQs

About Our Food

Almost all of our all-natural and organic meats and vegetables come single-source, from top-quality farms located right here in the good old USA. Although, we do have a few other sources due to our high-quality standards. For example, seafood and various exotics come from all over the world depending on where the highest quality products can be sourced from. For more information, check out Our Farms

Finding quality food means finding quality farms. We only source from farms that meet our rigorous quality standards. When we can work with a local farm we do. For example, our poultry comes from a family farm in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania. While local is important to us, the very best quality for our families and yours is most important.

We are the only home food delivery service in our area that develops customized menus based on family size, portion sizes, nights per week cooking at home, allergies, dietary restrictions, and more. We even customize ounces, thickness, bone-in or boneless, skin-on or skinless. Since no two families eat the same, no two custom food plans will be the same! Consider us your custom butcher.

Nutrition, Diets, & Menu

Almost definitely! Our Wellness Consultants will work with you to create a fully customized menu from our list of more than 2,000 products including products that are all-natural, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, paleo- and keto-friendly, and our all-natural product line comes with the Heartland Promise of no antibiotics, no steroids, no preservatives, no chemicals, and no growth hormones.
At this time we do not offer exclusively vegetarian or vegan menu plans. Animal proteins (beef, poultry, seafood, etc.) are prominently featured as part of a balanced diet in our custom menus. However, our service does offer enough flexibility to accommodate individual family members with vegetarian or vegan preferences; just not full vegetarian orders.
We make no special provision to provide foods or menus which strictly conform to Kosher or Halal standards.
