Tuttle’s Tote Program

Weekly Box of Seasonal Produce

Take the guess work out of knowing what the best tasting produce is each month of the year.  With over 80 years experience growing fruits and veggies, we fill our tote boxes with sweet corn and tomatoes at just the right times during the season.

Freshly harvested quality.

97% of past program participants tell us the tote boxes have high quality produce.  Sweet corn tastes better when it’s picked that morning.  Sourcing directly from our fields and farmers, allows us to have some of the freshest fruits and veggies around.

Choose your size.

We offer a large tote box and a small tote box.

Free Delivery to a Pickup Location Near You

Pickup at our Farm Store, as well as, seven other locations in Fishers, Oaklandon, Greenfield, Cumberland and others.

People tell us they love getting their box each week and finding out what’s inside.  One past participant said:  

“I am so glad our family participated in the Tuttles Tote Program! Getting the tote each week was a little like Christmas – we couldn’t wait to get home to see what fruits and veggies we received.”

“The program was fun, had lots of good veggies and fruits, and we looked forward to picking up the tote each week. Thanks for doing this program.”

FAQ’s:

What if I’m going to be gone?

Vacation Week:  You may take up to two vacation weeks off from the program during the season, if desired.  You can request a vacation week by emailing patti@tuttleorchards.com by Tuesday at midnight for that week’s tote.  At the end of the season, you will receive a Tuttle’s Farm Store gift card with credit for vacation weeks taken. Totes that are not picked up without advanced notice WILL NOT receive credit as this produce will be donated to the pickup location or a local food pantry.

Can I choose what produce to include?

The goal of the tote program is to provide you with a convenient selection of the best produce.  Because of this we don’t offer customization of the boxes.  If you are someone who likes to select your produce each week, we encourage you to shop in our farm store.

What if I find the program doesn’t work for me?

No problem.  We will be happy to refund any unused weeks no questions asked.  

Where does the produce come from?

Most items are grown right here at the orchard.  We grow over 30 types of veggies and over 10,000 apple trees.  We also source items from other farmers who are experts at growing different items (peaches from the south, strawberries from our friends at Spencer Farm for example).  You can read about our growing practices here.

How do I know what produce will be in the tote each week?

It varies every year due to weather and harvest, but you can get a good idea of what might be included by looking at our past year’s tote contents.  Check it out here.

How do I get the best price on my tote?

Those who choose to invest in the orchard by paying at the beginning of the season (this helps us buy seeds, plants, and get things growing) will receive $5 off your tote each week.  That’s a big savings over the course of the season.
