Introducing Farm Juice Co. Because…
Juice. Oh boy do I love a good juice. I have never been a fan of Juice Fasts, per say. But drinking a fresh-pressed juice is pretty nice. I’ve always felt like nutrients are getting to cells in a way that’s making me hydrated in a delicious, awesome way. It’s fab.
So last spring, when Alex told me she was opening a cold-pressed juice company, making small-batch juice using organic, fresh ingredients, I jumped at the chance to collaborate with her.
And did I ever. Last year’s first Summer Juicy Dump was a huge hit. And so fun. I’d never run a 3-Day Dump before. I think we were onto something. Which is totally why we are offering three this summer.
I wanted to share more about her company to my peeps for the upcoming Spring Dump. And sometimes the best way to share what a company is all about, is to ask directly at the source. So here we are…
INTERVIEW WITH ALEX O’SHEA OF FARM JUICE CO.
Sara: Hi Alex! I have been a big fan of your incredible company right from the get-go. For those unfamiliar with your brand, do you mind giving us a run-down on who you are and what you do?
Alex: Hi Sara! Thank you for the support and opportunity to collaborate again. It’s always a pleasure!
My name is Alex O’Shea and I am the owner operator of The Farm Juice Co. We specialize in raw cold-pressed fruit and vegetable juice.
Sara: Could you tell us a little about your juices and what makes them special?
Alex: Our juice is made daily in small batches with the highest quality organic produce. Small batch guarantees your juice is at its peak every time. The cold-pressed method allows me to make the most nutritionally pure, vibrant juice that is optimal for three to five days.
We do not add preservatives or use preservation techniques, ensuring you get the full benefit from all the gorgeous raw produce.
Our menu consists of 10 cold-pressed varieties, which have been developed with our clients health and taste buds in mind! I have a background in nutrition and food science but also love to eat and drink so finding the right balance between taste and nutritional benefit was paramount.
Sara: As do I. Which is one quality that draws me to you. In your opinion, why should people drink them?
Alex: Cold-pressed juice is a highly nutrient dense product that does not put any stress on your digestive system. When cold-pressed juice is consumed, its live enzymes, trace minerals and high vitamin count are quickly absorbed by the body to hydrate, energize and heal.
Each bottle contains 1kg of raw organic produce so they are a really convenient way to consume a decent amount of vegetables without any of the prep work!
Sara: How do you see them benefitting something specific, like the Spring Dump? How do you see them benefiting its participants?
Alex: As a Spring Dump participate you have already committed to take time for yourself and prioritize your nutrition. Cold-pressed juice can be a convenient way to help support your goals.
Integrating juices into your weekly routine will help you feel energized, healthy and balanced. They can be used as a snack, accompany a meal or on occasion substitute a meal all together. When you are in a hurry, didn’t pack enough snacks, haven’t completed your meal prep or looking for something convenient to reach to, cold-pressed juice offers a lot of nutritional benefit with minimal effort.
Sara: Last summer we created this wicked and lovely version of the Community Dump — a 3-Day Summer Juice Dump. I think it went rather well. And we learned a lot. So I’m very excited to be collaborating with you again. I can’t wait to launch three more 3-Day Summer Juice Dumps this summer. In the meantime, I’d love to see people drinking your juice on the Spring Dump (or others to come).
Sara: How would you suggest people use your juices on the Spring Dump, as far as ordering them goes, delivery, etc?
Alex: We have several options for clients to purchase juice:
On days when you feel you could use a boost individual juices can be purchased at revel, Edison’s or directly from our production kitchen (back entrance of 134 Downie).
If you feel a little more is needed I suggest placing an order through me for either pick up or delivery. Orders can be placed through the contact us section of my website www.thefarmjuiceco.com. I deliver Tuesday through Saturday before 9:00am.
Having a fridge stocked or a few on hand makes a green juice an easy option when you are searching for your next snack or short on time!
For those who would like to cleanse a little deeper to either really let your digestive system rest or conquer cravings we offer full day juice resets. This option includes consuming three to five juices with suggested small snacks. It is recommended to do nearing the end of the Spring Dump to ensure your body is prepared to receive the benefits… jumping in too soon can shock the system.
