Adopting North Iowa Fresh
With the North Iowa Fresh organization winding down at the end of 2021 after several great years of service to connect local growers with eaters in north central Iowa, Prudent Produce is stepping in to help keep those connections going.
Starting in March 2022, Prudent Produce began deliveries to many of the places previously served by North Iowa Fresh (NIF). Note that we continue to utilize pick up locations as NIF did -- we will NOT be able to deliver to individual homes on this route at this time. We will deliver to various sites ('coops'), and you will pick up your bin from that site.
First - know that we have imported your contact information, so our system thinks that you have an in-active account. Go to the Forgot Password Page that will enable you to (re-)set your password. After you re-set your password, you'll be able to select to set up your account.
On the 2nd step of the signup page, under "Your Delivery Address", click on the "looking for a coop" and then you'll be able to select a coop. This is the location for where you will pick up your bins each week. See our list of coops below to chose the best one for you.
After you have set your password and re-activated your account, you can make changes on your Account Settings page.
The first order cycle will open around noon on Friday, March 4th and close at 9AM on Sunday, March 6th.
The first delivery to the north Iowa region will be Thursday, March 10th.
