Jul. 23, 2013
OAKLAND, Calif. -- ALAMEDA, CALIF. – Well into its second year of business, veteran owned Golden Gate Organics is known in the East Bay as the premier grassroots organic produce delivery service. Throughout the East Bay and San Francisco you will find happy customers raving about their friendly service and premium organic produce. Now that they are delivering Bernie’s Best Apple Ciders their environmentally and locally focused customers have another reason to cheer them on.

For over thirty years he has been a staple of the Berkeley Farmer’s Market. All of his cider’s are locally made in Yorkville, CA from apples on his organic orchard and all of his ciders are USDA certified organic.

Organic Produce from the Farm to Your Doorstep, by Way of Alameda
East Bay Express

"People who like to keep their pantries stocked with fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables should consider themselves blessed if they live in the Bay Area: There are farmers' markets just about every day of the week. There are weekly community-supported agriculture (CSA) boxes you can pick up or have delivered to your home. Even many of the regular supermarkets - from Berkeley Bowl on down - have produce sections impressive enough to make out-of-staters fly into a jealous rage.
So it wasn't as a response to a shortage of options that Corey Tufts and Wayne Pierson tossed their hat in the ring. The two Coast Guard veterans founded Golden Gate Organics, an Alameda-based organic produce delivery service, almost exactly one year ago. Although the business is still developing its customer base, Tufts and Pierson feel confident that convenience- and budget-minded shoppers will find value in their weekly organic fruit and vegetable box.
Tufts told me that he and Pierson became fast friends in 2002 when they met aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau (which has its homeport in Alameda), both of them fresh out of bootcamp. Fast forward to a couple of years ago, after both men had continued their military service elsewhere - by 2010, Tufts had been transferred back to Alameda, and Pierson had left the Coast Guard and was employed at a Colorado-based organic produce delivery company. He'd worked his way up from delivery driver to web programmer..."

Organic Love Fest Resounding Success

"In the ancient days of my callow youth, shortly after the Big Bang, there existed mystical beings called milkmen. The mystical milkmen delivered dairy-fresh milk to the homes their grateful clients. Alas, I could only watch the mystical milkmen with longing and whimsy. My mother, wanting me to become a writer, let me drink nothing but "Goofy Grape." It worked.
These days, the mystical milkmen have been supplanted by produce wizards like Alameda's Wayne Pierson and Corey Tufts, and their company, Golden Gate Organics, which delivers choice, seasonal and pristinely fresh organic produce right to your door.
On April 17, Golden Gate Organics, Redwood Valley's Frey Vineyards, which produces organic, sulfite - free wines - and Soleil's African Kitchen presented "J'aime Organic," an organic wine and food tasting event, at the Frog And Fiddle on Webster Street....."

Produce delivery company grows into Richmond
September 29, 2011
"Corey Tufts and his best friend, Wayne Pierson, founded the produce-delivery service Golden Gate Organics earlier this year. The two Coast Guard members source pesticide-free fruits and vegetables-and even a few specialty items, including coffee and soy beans-from California farms, and extend their search as far as Mexico when there's a request for something that's not grown locally.
The small operation is working its way into the saturated Bay Area produce-delivery market despite the dismal economy, and has acquired more than 50 regular East Bay customers since it started delivering this summer.
Last month, the team expanded their route into the Richmond area after they noticed a growing demand there. Richmond Confidential reporters hung out with the crew in the wee hours of the morning recently to see them in action.
For more information on Golden Gate Organics, or to check out its online-ordering interface, go to www.goldengateorganics.com."

Golden Gate Organics: Alameda's newest delivery service
SFGate, In Alameda Blog, by Lauren Do
September 27, 2011
"At the Webster Street Jam this year, we (meaning my family and I) spotted a stand for Golden Gate Organics, which appeared to be just another organic fruit and veggie delivery service. But their stand was appealing and they were giving out free fruit so we stopped in for a chat. Turns out, Golden Gate Organics, despite the San Francisco sounding name, is actually based in Alameda.
So I sent them some questions about their business, so that In Alameda readers could get to know their local organic produce delivery service. Oh, and we are super happy customers now too after signing up for their service at the Jam."
