Arctic Harvest Deliveries offers 100% Alaska grown produce boxes. We have summer and winter seasonal subscriptions, with add-on options of meat, eggs & more. We work with over twenty local farms to provide a diverse variety of the freshest Alaskan produce in our boxes each week. Our farmers benefit because we pre-plan which products we will purchase for the season and they can focus on growing what they're good at, instead of everything. It also provides an alternative to selling at farmers markets for those farmers who want to spend more time doing what they love--farming!
how it works
We sell our produce boxes on a seasonal subscription basis--summer & winter--with the option of weekly or every other week delivery. We use this seasonal subscription model because CSA is all about cultivating commitments between farmers to grow products and community members to purchase them. We hand choose which products go into the boxes each week to make sure you are getting the best quality and variety of produce available locally. We do not offer box customizations (yet...) and encourage our members to embrace seasonal eating and getting out of their food comfort zone!
With each box you will receive a list of the products, the farm they came from, and recipe ideas for added inspiration. Pick up your boxes at one of our drop sites around Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, Wasilla, & Girdwood (read on for a list of pick up locations). We also offer 100% local meat shares and egg shares you can add on to your produce subscription.
We know how much the average Alaskan travels, so we offer unlimited delivery holds, just be sure to give us at least one week's notice. You can check out all of our rules for holds, cancellations and more on our FAQs page.
Summer Subscription 2020
**signups will open late april**
We include as much variety in our produce boxes as possible, while still giving you plenty of staples from week to week. Most things you find at the farmers market, you will see at least once in your box--we might even surprise you!
July starts us off with lots of fresh greens like spring mix, arugula, chard and kale, bok choy, radishes, zucchini & cucumbers.
August has us moving into goodies like tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, peas & beans.
September we'll be in full swing with things like leeks, winter squash, onions, potatoes, beets & apples.
See below for produce box examples. Click the photo to see a list of products.

summer csa updates
With all of the unknowns right now we have a lot of decisions to make in the next few months. We will still be offering a CSA but there may be some changes to how it's worked in the past. It is uncertain whether many of our current pickup sites will be open come summer, so there may be changes to pickup locations. We are looking into the possibility of adding other options in addition to the CSA like more customized, non-subscription based ordering.
No final decisions have been made yet, but we will keep you all posted as they are. Until then, stay healthy and take care of each other!

Our winter produce box subscriptions are available for every other week delivery only. There is less variety in the winter and we don't want you to get burned out on too many root vegetables; also we schedule delivery dates to avoid holidays. That said, there are still plenty of great local veggies to be had!
The anchor for our winter boxes are root & storage veggies: various varieties of potatoes, carrots, winter squash, onions, Brussels sprouts, turnips, beets, cabbage, rutabagas, etc. But you never get just a box of just roots. We always supplement with a combination of greens, herbs & sprouts from our indoor hydroponic growers such as spring mix, basil & sunflower shoots to name a few. While we try to vary the produce as much as we can, be prepared to get staples like carrots, potatoes & spring mix in most every box. If you're not into that we understand--just promise to check back in summer!
