Artisan Southern Foods from Box South

Artisan Southern Foods from Box South
Most folks are familiar with monthly food boxes such as CSAs that support fresh and local produce, but in more recent years food box subscriptions have moved more into the gourmet spectrum, bringing unique and unusual, mostly hand-crafted and small batch artisan foods to the masses.

The problem is, there has been a severe under-representation of the South, and especially of the great artisan foods of the South. Box South has solved that with one of the finest offerings of Southern food boxes out there and a monthly subscription that will bring full, retail sized artisan foods from all across the South, right to your own front door.
With deep respect to our amazing fatback seasoned veggies and all the beloved forms of our fried foods of The South, you won't be finding that kind of food in your Box South boxes. While all the boxes are always a surprise as to the contents, the products pictured here are just a small representation of the type of products you might find in your future monthly boxes.

These products come from sources you may not have been aware of, even as a Southerner, or possibly overlooked, even if you are from the areas where the companies are located.

In your box, you may find products similar to those pictured above. Fine teas like Colonial Bohea (pronounced "Boo-Hee"), a black tea blend of pekoe, orange pekoe, and souchong (lightly smoked) tea leaves, that are blended by hand and packaged in Charleston, South Carolina and come with a history.

Other goodies that might make an appearance in your monthly box may include products like old fashioned cocktail caramels made with sugar, butter, bourbon, orange extracts and aromatic bitters straight from Memphis, Tennessee - or freshly roasted and milled handcrafted nut butters made with peanuts, Muddy Pond brand pure sorghum syrup, sea salt and wildflower honey from Durham, North Carolina.

Artisan candy bars could make an appearance, hand crafted from bean to bar 45% cacao malted milk chocolate bars, or made with goat milk caramel, toasted pecans and a vanilla honey nougat, or Perc brand coffee ganache (think a grown up Milky Way), from Savannah, Georgia.

You may find some specialty condiments, pickles or other artisan, hand crafted jams such as spiced apple and beer jam crafted with Haywood County apples and Waynesville, North Carolina's Frog Level Brewing Company's Tadpole Porter craft beer, great with cheese, as an addition to a sauce or as a glaze.

Hungry yet? Want to see what it's all about? Orders are being taken right now for boxes that will ship in May and gives you a chance to take a trial subscription to see what it's all about. Or, dive right into a recurring monthly subscription instead to ensure those surprise boxes keep coming.

Boxes generally include somewhere around 4 to 5, retail-sized artisan foods, plus a brochure with information about the products and also instructions on how to download an e-book that gives a more extended full product review, along with recipes and other information about the products.

Mini box services and gift boxes will be available in the future, but if you are interested in gifting a box now, simply use Box South's contact page after you checkout to arrange to have your packaged shipped to the recipient of your choice. They'll even send a personalized email to let them know something special is on the way!

All payments include shipping via USPS Priority Mail and you can certainly cancel, request a refund on any unshipped boxes, or pause your service anytime. Box South is located in Conyers, Georgia, a few miles east of downtown Atlanta, so of course taxes apply to boxes shipping in the state of Georgia.

Box South is your source for the best in artisan food boxes from The South! If you have a foodie in your life, especially if they happen to be a displaced Southerner, a Box South subscription would be an ideal gift perfect for a birthday, as a shower or wedding gift, or for any occasion.
