The startup is helping farmers such as Ryan Casey, who runs a small organic farm that grows more than 50 types of fruits, vegetables and flowers. His Blue House Farm in Pescadero, about 45 miles south of San Francisco, mainly sells its produce at farmers markets and through community agriculture programs, but Good Eggs makes up a growing share of business.
"They're really good at marketing and finding people and connecting people with the food, which leaves me more time to do the growing," said Casey, standing in a field of leafy greens.
Good Eggs has attracted enthusiastic foodies like Shelley Mainzer, who does nearly all her grocery shopping on the website and often emails producers with questions and comments.
After her weekly order arrived at her downtown San Francisco office, she pulled out organic cauliflower and Romanesco broccoli she bought from Blue House Farm.
"I can't eat store-bought food anymore because it just doesn't taste the same," said Mainzer, who works as an executive assistant at a small investment bank. "You basically remember what things are supposed to taste like when you eat these fresh vegetables and fruits."
