When Amanda Bosh goes grocery shopping, it’s all about super fresh apples, artisan cheese, free-range chicken, and organic Brussels sprouts.
But Bosh doesn’t get these products at an upscale supermarket. Instead, she heads to a local private school, where she will pick up the best quality meat, dairy, fruit, and vegetables.
Bosh’s bounty, packed tight into a reusable grocery bag, comes courtesy of Farmers to You, a company that delivers to Boston area consumers direct from Vermont farms. In addition to drop-off sites, such as the Lexington-Waldorf School, the company offers home delivery in Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, Brookline, and a few suburban communities. Farmers to You is one of several area companies expanding the local food movement beyond farmers markets and trendy restaurants. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
