We are thrilled to announce that Chow Locally has merged with Blue Sky Organic Farms.
Four years ago, Chow Locally set out to provide customers a convenient way to fill their homes with a beautiful variety of local and sustainable produce. By joining with our long time partner, Blue Sky Organic Farms, we are able to continue our mission at an even greater scale. Our team feels privileged to join with a company who you are already familiar with, whose produce has been in almost every Chow Share, and who like us, takes pride in providing customers with a great variety of organic, local produce.

Thank You!Thank you so much for your support over the last four years. We could not have gotten here without your feedback, passion, and belief in our vision. We hope you continue on with Blue Sky Organic Farms and all they have to offer.
As always, thanks for supporting local food in Arizona!
Who is Blue Sky Organic Farms?Blue Sky Organic Farms is a 20-year-old organic farm operating in Litchfield Park, Arizona. You frequently see them sold in the produce aisle at Whole Foods and have been a frequent contributor to the Chow Shares in the past. The best way to get to know them is to visit the farm during one of their Farm Days, held on the first Sunday of each month starting in December. But, until you can make it out to the farm, here is a short virtual farm tour from our visit to Blue Sky last year: https://vimeo.com/chowlocally/blue-sky-farms
Will my pick up time or location change?No, not initially, but over the next few months’ slight adjustments may be made as we consolidate delivery routes. Blue Sky Organic Farms also offers home delivery valley wide, including Tucson.
Will I have the option to put my share on hold?Yes, you will use Blue Sky Organic Farms website to maintain those details.
