Where does the produce come from?
We offer our home grown produce when it is in season, which typically runs from June/July all the way into October.
When we can’t offer home grown items, we try to purchase from local farmers. These are farmers we’ve worked with for several years. This way the produce is delivered directly to us and we, in turn, bring it directly to you- fewer handoffs involved.
Some items we offer simply aren’t grown in the Midwest. For instance, our fresh peaches are brought up from Georgia, Missouri, and Colorado as they are in season. If you have any other questions about the produce we sell, please don’t hesitate to ask!
Why should I buy from Huffman Produce vs. the grocery store?
We are a small, local family farm located right here in Bennington (with most of our growing ground in Valley) and have been providing quality produce to the Omaha Metro for years.
More importantly, we deeply care about how we grow and source our produce. We want to bring the freshest, tastiest produce directly to the homes of Omaha.
Lastly, during this unprecedented time in our world we recognize that it’s important to limit contact which is why:
1. We offer contactless deliver to your doorstep
2. Buying our produce limits the amount of hands touching the food you eat.
3. Produce is fresher as it’s not “sitting” around at a store or being picked over by other people.
We appreciate our customers and will continue to strive to offer you the freshest produce in town!
Where do you deliver?
We are currently offering free delivery (with minimum of $30 produce purchase**) to the following areas: Omaha, Elkhorn, Bennington, Bellevue, Papillion, LaVista, Ralston, Valley, Waterloo, and Gretna
**(Honey, Jams, Jellies, Salsas, and Elderberry Syrup do not apply toward this minimum)
Will you sell all the same produce at the stands as you have on your website for delivery?
Unfortunately, no. There are certain produce items that just don’t fare well in the heat/sun that we cannot carry at the produce stands.
Can I choose a specific time of day for my produce to be delivered?
Currently we do not have this option, but as our business expands, there is a chance things will change as the business evolves. We will do our best to deliver to you the day that you requested delivery between the hours of 8am and 6pm.
What if I receive a product that is less than quality?
What if my porch sits in the sun, will this hurt the produce if I’m not home when the delivery happens?
We recommend having a shaded area for the produce to sit. If the side of your garage might be better, be sure to put that in the comments on your order. If you’d prefer to set a cooler out for us to put the produce in, we are more than happy to make this work. Just make a note about it on your order please.
I’d like to add more produce to my order but I already submitted the order. Is there a way to do this?
Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have the ability to do this. However, you can always check out where our roadside produce stands are and stop by one of those Monday-Saturday to pick up produce directly if you’re in a crunch! Check out our “Find Us” tab for hours and locations!
How do I apply for a job at Huffman Produce?
Huffman Produce has positions available for delivery drivers and roadside stand sellers. Our roadside stands are often employed by high school and college students. Once these employees return to school in the fall, Huffman Produce is looking for people to finish the season through October 31st. Contact us through email or Facebook, and we will be happy to discuss open positions.
