becoming happy dirt

Play Video

When our journey began in 2004, local and organic produce was not easy to find in our corner of the country. Together with a small group of farmers we set out to solve this problem. Today we are proud to partner with hundreds of farmers and customers throughout North America.

Happy Dirt is here to make organic much more relatable for us all…retailers, chefs, shoppers and guests. It truly is our joy to better connect you to our incredible farmers and their healthy and delicious food.

Eat Happy!

capabilities & commitments

We have the audacity to believe that providing fresh fruits, vegetables and pantry goods can make us all a little happier. It’s also a great way to build a more sustainable food system. So every day at Happy Dirt, we work hard to pool diverse harvests from several regions, supporting our farmers and enabling us to meet your growing demand for a steady stream of high-quality food choices throughout the year. Happy customers, happy farmers and a happier planet.

When it comes to driving our mission, our capabilities are virtually endless in helping you access the product you desire from farmers you can trust.

We recognize that no two needs are the same. Flexibility is built into our model. We can offer LTL or FTL shipping, via delivered pricing or FOB to your location anywhere in North America, or one of our friendly drivers at your back door in our immediate region. We’re happy to ship straight pallets or mixed pallets of commodity items or smaller specialty crops. Whatever your needs may be, we proudly and skillfully inspire connections between buyers and producers every day.

Through targeted buying and advocating for fair prices, we are also driving growth and expansion for our partners throughout the food system.

We believe we have the best team in the industry. The entire staff of Happy Dirt is focused on quality, fulfillment and delivery records. In addition, you can expect stellar professionalism, friendliness, thoughtfulness and communication. Trust the constant feedback we get from current customers… You’ll be HAPPY!

Happy Dirt participates in the following third-party audit programs to ensure its commitment to core values: Certified Organic, Food Safety Certified (Primus GFS), Certified B-Corporation, and Certified Living Wage Employer. All of these protocols make Happy Dirt a stronger business – more resilient, sustainable, and better for people and planet!
