If you drink a lot of freshly made juice, you quickly realize that liquefied produce isn't cheap. It takes a lot of carrots, apples, kale and cucumbers to make a single serving, and you need a good blender to get it done.
To cater to juice-loving Texans, Johnson's Backyard Garden has announced the return of its popular juice box, which contains vegetables, greens, fruits and herbs that can easily go in a juice machine or high-powered blender. That might include watermelon, cucumbers, carrots, beets, lemongrass, even a spicy pepper or two, according to a recent post on the farm's website. The boxes will change seasonably and cost $20 or $15 for existing CSA members.
JBG, as it is known, been selling locally grown produce since 2004 at local farmers markets and through a popular community-supported agriculture program, or CSA. Customers have always been able to get different-sized boxes of seasonal locally grown (except some fruit) delivered to your house or available for pick-up at one of dozens of sites throughout the city. In recent years, the farm has grown considerable in acreage and has expanded delivery to Houston, Dallas and San Antonio.
