Cutia Taranului (Romania)
Local food delivered at your doorstep
Do you care where your food comes from? Do you care who grows it? Would you like to enjoy fresh produce locally grown by your fellow Romanian peasants? Would you like it delivered to your doorstep every week? If so, please read on. Cutia Taranului hopes to restore a precious, traditional and reliable relationship between Romanians who grow food in the village and you, Romanians who live in the city who rely on it to nourish yourselves. Our wish is to make it possible for you to find and connect with a local peasant family who will happily supply you with fresh produce every week. A beautiful initiative by Ronen Hirsch.
Cutia Taranului is slightly different then shopping with a list. The contents of the box may change from time to time based on the generosity of Mother Earth and seasonal changes throughout the year. The contents of every Cutia Taranului is a direct reflection of what comes from the earth and how it is worked by the peasants who’s produce you buy. Food is delivered when it beomes available. When it comes to vegetables, the boxes in spring are light and fluffy as they contain a lot of salad leaves, the boxes get heavier in summer when tomatoes and peppers appear and even heavier in fall as potatoes and other root vegetables become available. For the most part this cycle is governed by nature and it provides, when it comes to vegetables, a continuous supply of fresh food for 6-8 months (in Romania). Right now available in the area of Cluj Napoca and Bucharest.
