All of our items are made fresh by hand in our Chicago kitchen. From washing and chopping produce to making dressings from scratch, we pride ourselves on the level of care in our kitchen. We are obsessed with quality, and actively partner with our suppliers to source responsibly grown and harvested ingredients.
We use local and organic ingredients whenever possible, but our focus during sourcing is to find the best quality products available from partners we know and trust. Sometimes this happens to be local and organic, but not all the time.
We strive to work with partners who share our commitment to the best taste possible and who believe in treating their employees and the environment as ethically as possible. Of course, impeccable food safety standards are a must, as well as the capability to meet our demand for volume.
Other considerations as we make our food? We constantly aim to reduce our environmental impact at every level of the production process. Additionally, we believe part of improving the food system includes making sure animals raised for food are treated with respect and are working with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) on our animal welfare policy. See our Better Chicken Commitment.
Full nutritional information for our products can be found on our menu page on our main website here. New items are added to our menu frequently, so if you can’t find a specific item click here to submit a request and our customer support team will be happy to assist!
While we do accommodate a range of dietary preferences, our recipes are packed in a facility that handles gluten as well as all major food allergens: milk, eggs, fish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, sesame, soy, and shellfish.
Our Wheat-Free recipes are prepared in the same facility as our other meals, and may not be suitable for those with severe gluten intolerance or celiac disease.
Yes, this is something the team discusses frequently. Finding a way to make our packaging as sustainable as possible is a top priority and we are constantly researching, testing and formulating new ways to transport our food.
The trouble with using glass specifically is that it makes the food less affordable and is very unsafe for the employees who pack and deliver our meals. We process 15,000+ meals a day in our kitchen facility. If one glass jar breaks during production, that would violate food safety regulations for all the food produced that day. While we’d love to use glass from a sustainability perspective, we aren’t willing to compromise on food quality and employee safety.
Our jars are all 100% recyclable and can be tossed in any recycling bin. You can also recycle them at the Fridge on your next visit. However, feel free to keep and reuse them – our customers find lots of creative uses for their jars (think storing dry goods in the pantry, organizing art supplies, or using for leftovers).
We recommend always putting your food into an alternate bowl but if you want to heat up your jar, be sure to check the label to ensure it's heatable. Some of our 12 and 16-oz jars can be microwaved, but our larger jars cannot!
We optimize inventory levels at the Fridge to reduce food waste, and any leftover food that we do end up with is composted by hand. To date, we’ve composted well more than 700,000 pounds of food (that’s roughly the weight of 70 elephants, for your mental picture).
Shelf life varies by product, but you can find a printed “enjoy by” date on the packaging of each item. On average, items last 4-5 days in the fridge. Keep in mind that we don’t use preservatives on our items, so you can expect them to last about as long as regular produce does. Items with cooked veggies (like many of our bowls) can stay fresh for 5 days or more. Once received, please make sure to refrigerate your products as soon as possible to ensure they maintain freshness!
We’re so sorry we aren’t currently delivering to your area! We are working to expand our delivery zones, and will share your interest with our operations team. We will be sure to update you if we start offering deliveries in your zip code!

Jars: Remove labels, rinse and recycle in your curbside bin. Or – reuse the jars for tupperware or storage!
Cardboard box and Kraft paper: Flatten and recycle in your curbside bin.
PET liner: Sourced almost entirely from recycled drink bottles, our PET fiber insulated liners are fully curbside recyclable with no adhesives, PVC, paper or contaminants to the recycling stream.
Enviro Ice Pack: We chose the most eco-friendly ice pack on the market. After it thaws, it’s safe to pour down your drain and even acts as a natural cleaner for your pipes. The nitrogen in the pack also makes it great plant food – simply pour gel directly into the soil of indoor or outdoor plants. The pouch is also #4 recyclable plastic and can be recycled with your plastic shopping bags.
Each order is packed to fit perfectly in our boxes. At this time, we are unable to combine multiple boxes per delivery address, however, you can place two separate orders however each box will incur a $5.99 shipping fee.

Food and employee safety is the cornerstone of our business, both now and everyday. For years, we’ve employed a full-time food safety team of 15 people who are dedicated to maintaining our extremely high quality standards.
Our stringent everyday safety standards have never been so important. Here are a few of the things you can always count on from Farmer’s Fridge:
Food is produced in an USDA/FDA compliant facility and surpasses all requirements for good manufacturing standards. Our production facility is regularly inspected by an external food safety company (Siliker) and has consistently passed with extremely high scores. Strict sanitation practices (including washing down the entire facility from floor to ceiling with a pressure hose every day) and protective gear for employees including full hair and face coverings, smocks to cover clothing and disposable protective gloves. Want to learn more about exactly what we’ve changed to protect customers and employees? Learn more here.
In the event that you are unhappy with any part of your Farmer’s Fridge order, you can reach out to us within seven (7) days of the date you received the unsatisfactory item by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If related to the condition of an item, Farmer’s Fridge, at its reasonable discretion, may give you a credit for the individual item or delivery, and in some situations, issue a partial or full refund. We reserve the right to require either a photograph or return of the unsatisfactory item before any refund or credit will be issued. If you refuse delivery of a Product because you skipped or canceled the order prior to the cancellation deadline for that order and you are able to provide documentary evidence of such skip or cancellation (for instance, a time-stamped email), Farmer’s Fridge will process a credit or a full refund (including any applicable delivery charges) as soon as practicable and, in any case, within 30 days of your cancellation request.
