The Food

We source our produce from a group of trusted, small-scale farmers that are either USDA Certified Organic or utilize organic growing practices but may not be certified. Especially during the northeast growing season we source from farms within 300 miles of NYC.


A few of our year-round produce items are sourced outside our local area (either in the winter months, or because those items don’t grow locally during any part of the year).


You can learn more about our mission and food sourcing standards here: About Us
All of our food is grown using organic methods. It is entirely free of hormones, antibiotics, GMOs and almost entirely without pesticides. Some of our producers are certified organic, but some are not. We’ve made a commitment first and foremost to farmers in the Mid-Atlantic. We decided to choose producers based on our own calibration of standards. The official organic certification is too costly for many of our producers, even though they abide by the same practices.

Our approach involves talking with every farmer and discussing their growing practices. We ask questions that are key components to other certifications such as G.A.P. (Good Agricultural Practices) and Certified Naturally Grown (USDA Organic Certification alternative).

All of the fruit we sell is grown using IPM (Integrated Pest Management). It is a farming process in which farmers use as little spray as possible and do what they can to cultivate a strong presence of “good” bugs.
All of our meat and dairy is pasture raised with no hormones or antibiotics. All of the grazing animals are 100% grass fed.

We cannot officially call our farmers organic, but we do trust that the farmers we work with raise crops that are healthy for them, their farm and anyone who consumes the food they raise.

You can learn more about our food and our mission here: About Us

In most cases, yes! Our Seasonal Produce Boxes are always plant-based and never contain meat, dairy, or gluten. We offer our Cook’s Boxes in three different options (Omnivore, Paleo, Vegetarian) to suit your specific dietary lifestyle.

All of our Farm Boxes are customizable, allowing you to swap out any item to which you might be allergic. Please keep in mind that our boxes are all packed in the same facility, so if you have a severe allergy to a particular item, we recommend you reach out to our team so we can best advise you and ensure your safety.

Additionally, you can choose to order à la carte to further tailor your order to your specific dietary needs, no subscription required.

All of our beef, pork, poultry, and seafood cuts are frozen. This is the same way in which our producers store their proteins and deliver them to us. Flash-freezing meat ensures it maintains its farm-fresh or wild-caught flavor and texture while preserving the nutrients created by the animal’s natural diet.

ATTN: Due to current high demand, you may receive meat that is fresh. Our farm partners are working hard to help us feed as many New Yorkers as possible. If you receive a cut of fresh meat, you may choose to freeze it upon delivery or consume it within 3-5 days. If you have any concerns about your order, please don't hesitate to contact us at questions@farmtopeople.com.

Yes! Our produce is truly farm-fresh so you might notice a little dirt every now and then (that’s okay with us). We always recommend giving your produce a good rinse under cold water right before you prepare it.

No, we don’t. It is currently illegal to sell raw milk outside of farm locations in the state of New York. We do, however, sell raw milk cheeses. Browse our cheese selection here.

The answer to this question varies by cheese type. Read the full description of any cheese you may be interested in to learn if it is made from raw or pasteurized milk.

Don’t worry! The “Customize” button will appear when we finalize sourcing for the upcoming week’s Farm Boxes and publish them to our website. This typically occurs on Thursdays for the following week’s deliveries. If you are visiting our website on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday and don’t see the “Customize” button, check back on Thursday.

If you are visiting the website Thursday-Sunday and don’t see the “Customize” button under your Farm Box’s name in your cart, please contact us for assistance.
Delivering harvested-to-order produce and local foods requires a bit of a different model than your traditional e-commerce checkout process. Our ordering process centers around an order “cut-off time,” which allows us to place orders with our farm partners leaving them enough time to harvest, process, and deliver their goods to us (just in time to deliver to you!).

For this reason, there is no checkout button on our website. All items in your cart at the time of order cut-off will be automatically finalized and billed for, and will arrive on your scheduled delivery day.

About Us

We’ve been supporting makers and farmers since 2012!
Farm to People was founded by a father and son team - David and Michael Robinov -  from a shared passion for wholesome, delicious food made the way it should be, by small-batch makers using traditional methods. We hope Farm To People can be a platform that will energize a sustainable, transparent food system conversation for conscious eaters who want to support small-batch producers!

We do not have a permanent storefront, but during the holiday season, you can come visit us at the Union Square and Bryant Park Holiday Markets! Check your email for updates on those and other pop-ups.
