How It Works
How does it work?
Each week, the NE Box staff works closely with local farmers and producers to bring you the best local food. We put together a curated selection of products for each of our Box Options and pre-fill your virtual box. Every Sunday at 10AM you can log in and see what our staff has put together for you, and you can make as many changes or additions as you like.
For example, if you sign up for the Large Box, but one week, you decide you would rather have radishes and ginger syrup instead of ground beef and butter, go ahead! You can pick whatever you want! Perhaps you sign up for the Small Box and look forward to having our expert team surprise you with a variety of local food items that fit right into your budget. After you sign up, you don’t have to log in, and the curated box our staff puts together will be waiting for you at your dropsite each week.
In addition to the items that your virtual box will be filled with, there will be a rotating selection of other kitchen staples and specialty products for you to choose from.
On Monday at midnight, Nebraska Box orders will be sent to our producers, who will harvest and pack your fresh food items over the next few days. We will pack your custom Nebraska Boxes every Thursday, and deliver to your chosen pickup site every Friday. You’ll need to retrieve your box within the given timeframe. Please see our Terms & Conditions page for more info.
The cycle begins again over the weekend.
How do I get my own NE Box?
➥You can either start a subscription or you can simply order a single one-off box. Our subscriptions run weekly over the course of four weeks. If you’d rather order just a single box you can also do that. View the Sign Up page to see which works best for you.
➥Choose the subscription type that fits your tastes and needs. We currently offer two boxes – Small and Large.
➥Customize your box each week to get exactly what you want, or you can go with the pre-loaded box options.
➥Pick up your box at your workplace or neighborhood drop site.
➥Enjoy the best food Nebraska producers have to offer!
What are the different options?
The type of subscription is the starting point for your NE Box. The option you choose, (Small or Large), will determine your monthly subscription and renewal price, and the items your box will be pre-loaded with each week.
Small Box: a mix of 4+ local food items. The mix will include local produce and value-added items such as meat, cheese, bread, honey, eggs, and more — less than or equal to $20/box
Large Box: a mix of 6+ local food items. The mix will include local produce and value-added items such as meat, cheese, bread, honey, eggs, and more — less than or equal to $40/box
Remember, you can customize your box each week from Sunday at 10:00 AM until 11:59 PM Monday night. If you choose not to do anything, you’ll receive the pre-loaded box options we carefully curate each week.
