The new master-planned community is the first in the Houston area to establish a partnership with Farmhouse Delivery of Austin, an online service that brings the best of a Farmer’s Market to customers by delivering Texas-grown organic and sustainably produced vegetables and fruits.
While the service currently delivers to residents throughout the Houston area, Cane Island is the first Houston residential master-planned community which Farmhouse Delivery offers a 20-percent discount to residents by utilizing a group drop at the community’s Welcome Center. Farmhouse Delivery also is waiving its $20 set-up fee for all Cane Island residents.
Ideal for busy young professionals, the service offers more than 300 Texas-sourced products including meats, dairy, breads from well-known bakeries such as Houston’s own Slow Dough and Austin’s Easy Tiger, coffee and prepared foods.
“While Farmer’s Markets are great experiences, many families simply do not have the time on the weekends to visit one,” explains Dan Naef, president of Rise Communities, developer of Cane Island.
Since Farmhouse Delivery sources from many different farms, it can offer a broader variety of produce throughout the growing season, Naef adds.
Launched in 2009 on an east Austin farm, Farmhouse Delivery has grown to serve over 5,000 customers in the Austin, Houston, San Antonio and Dallas metropolitan areas.
This year, Farmhouse Delivery began offering “Supper Club,” an evolving, weekly meal delivery service based around Texas seasonal cooking. Each week, Supper Club customers receive locally sourced proteins, vegetables, sauces, and spices along with a recipe to prepare a farm-to-table meal in under an hour.
“Our homes not only have some of the best-looking kitchens in town, they’ll soon have the healthiest kitchens in town,” Naef adds. “Plus, the service sure beats making multiple trips to the grocery store.”
One of the most sought-after master-planned communities west of Houston, Cane Island offers new luxury homes from the $200’s to the millions, including those in gated sections and on prized cul-de-sac homesites from Coventry Homes, Toll Brothers, Ryland Homes, Shea Homes, David Weekley Homes, Perry Homes and Trendmaker Homes. Residents enjoy a resort-style Amenity Village along with easy access onto Interstate 10 via the Cane Island Parkway.
The community also offers The Estates at Cane Island, a gated custom home neighborhood with Houston’s first street pantries.
