Green Bean Delivery

It may be my obsession with Pinterest or my overwhelming desire to believe I actually am Martha Stewart, but I am ecstatic each week when my $35 tub of fresh produce arrives from Green Bean Delivery.  My family members roll their eyes as I rush to pinterest to find recipes that will combine all my new food into fanciful, ingenious masterpieces.  Fresh produce at the supermarket is expensive so I put my sleuth skills to work to find alternatives.  Luckily, when you mix a nutritionist and an environmentalist with integrity, you get the perfect union!

Matt Ewer and Elizabeth Blessing are soul mates.  Drawn together by their passion for developing a healthier community, they combined their experiences to develop a marriage and business that will sustain integrity and value for the future.  They offer online home delivery of fresh,organic produce from local farmers and artisans.  The produce is affordable, convenient, and assessable to Midwest communities.  Thank you both for this service and for being “real” and doing what you believe is right.

Matt Ewer and Elizabeth Blessing, husband and wife, share equal passions for healthy community, nutrition education, sustainable farming and food networks. After a short stint on the West Coast, the pair decided to move back home to Indianapolis and put their experiences to the test by starting their own food delivery business.

In 2007, Green B.E.A.N. Delivery, formerly Farm Fresh Delivery, was founded in Indianapolis by Matt and Elizabeth. John Freeland and Matt attended college together and have remained good friends through the years. After Matt started the company, John, who is now the vice president, saw a need and desire for this type of service in Cincinnati. In early 2009, Green B.E.A.N. Delivery expanded to The Queen City.

 Matt has a degree in Environmental Management from Indiana University. After graduating in 2000, he worked at Stranger’s Hill organic farm in Bloomington, Ind., for two seasons. Enjoying his experience in farming led Matt to Washington State for another learning experience in organics. While in Seattle for four years, Matt was the general manager of Full Circle Farm, which was recently named “one of the most successful small farms in the country” by US News. He has experience in buying, growing and selling large volumes of produce and natural products, as well as marketing and managing a growing company.

Elizabeth has a Master of Science in Nutrition from Bastyr University and a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from Indiana University. After graduating from Bastyr, she worked as a nutrition educator for Washington State University King County Extension’s Food $ense Program. While at Food $ense, she co-authored nutrition education curriculum. In 2007, Elizabeth became the on-site nutritionist and food service instructor at The Chef’s Academy, the Indiana Business College’s culinary school. Today, as the full-time staff nutritionist at Green B.E.A.N. Delivery, Beth creates unique recipes and information nutritional pieces for members to enjoy.

 Today, Green B.E.A.N. Delivery is a fast growing online home delivery service that provides organic produce and natural groceries to its members sourced from local farmers and artisans. The company’s goal is to make healthy, local and sustainably grown foods convenient, affordable and accessible to Midwest communities. Green B.E.A.N. Delivery’s focus is on improving the health of Midwest urban communities while strengthening its sustainable food businesses with both rural and urban roots.  

 The company currently serves Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, Ind., Dayton, Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio, and Louisville, Ky., as well as the greater surrounding areas. Its service provides an avenue for local artisans and farmers to share their crafts and talents with local community members. Green B.E.A.N. Delivery services homes, and recently began delivering to offices in Cincinnati.

 Additionally, Green B.E.A.N. Delivery is focused on several other initiatives, such as Farm to Kitchen Foods, which produces homemade food for members.  Tiny Footprint Distribution by Green B.E.A.N. Delivery distributes all-natural, sustainably produced products to end retailers, and was created to help artisans with the biggest challenge they face—distribution. Garden on the Go, in collaboration with Indiana University Health, is a mobile produce truck that works to provide Indianapolis communities with better access to healthy foods. As others come to fruition, we will make the announcement.
