About Us

GreenBox Farms is a dedicated organic fresh food and vegetable online supplier, located in Albany, Georgia. 

Our History

Although GreenBox Family Farms was incorporated in March, 2020, its history dates back to forty years ago.

The founder of GreenBox Family Farm, Samuel Stringer, is a retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel, having served his country during peace and war for over 23 years.

Sam grew up in farming country in the plains of Oklahoma, and has always had a love affair with farming, harvesting, and eating fresh produce.

After over a year of detailed research and study, Sam decided to take a leap of faith and turn his passion into a business and opened Greenbox Family Farm. 

Initially, Sam offered fresh produce through GreenBox Family Farm providing and enjoying real food, purchased from people you can trust.  The core philosophy is dedicating connecting members - like you - with farmers - like us - who share your passion for food that is local, fresh, and fully potent.

 And Now

Recently, GreenBox Family Farm has expanded into the gourmet mushroom market. They have geared up production of a large variety of organically grown gourmet mushrooms.   

A NEW PRODUCT: Growing Mushrooms Easily at Home

In a new effort, Sam has developed a distinct “Grow-at-Home” mushroom kit. 

This kit consists of a fully inoculated box of mushroom spawn. All you have to do is open the front of the box, spray it with water twice a day, and watch it grow!

Our mushrooms actually grow on recycled coffee grounds.These coffee grounds, which would normally be thrown out as waste, are actually an excellent food source for our mushrooms.

Within two weeks, you will be harvesting a large portion of delicious gourmet mushrooms right in our own home. What’s more is that you can let the box “rest” for two days and then start the process of watering twice a day and get a second harvest of the same delicious mushrooms. 

While we guarantee at least two harvests, some of our customers have harvested as many as four crops from a single kit. 

GreenBox Family Grow Kit
This grow kit has proven to be an excellent school science project for both public schools and home schools. It works like this:
  • GreenBox Farms has developed an educational Grow Kit that also comes with an excellent activity booklet and teaching outline. 
  • Both teachers and students love watching the mushrooms develop from tiny pins to full grown mushrooms in a two week time frame. 
  • The activity booklet and Teacher’s Guide provides a knowledge-based program that discusses the history of mushroom cultivation and human history. 
  • Did you know that humans were cultivating and eating mushrooms for over 19,000 years? 
  • Finally, GreenBox is so confident in their grow kit that they offer a 100% money-back guarantee if the initial harvest does not work.

 Our Pledge & Our Promise

 When we call ourselves an organic farm, we live up to our words no matter what. 

To us, excellent fresh food is something that has not lost its potency, is flavorsome, restorative to the body, and is grown without chemicals. This pledge applies to all our fresh organic mushrooms and our mushroom grow kits.
