About Us

We are so honored to be a nominee for the 2018 Beginning Farmer of the Year Award.  Check out our video submission below!

Sandbox Organics is a certified Organic farm selling a wide variety of high-quality, locally grown produce for the Chicagoland area through it’s Farm Share program and the Logan Square Farmer’s Market.   After spending a few years working on different farms around the country, I decided to bring my new-found skills and passion back home to Chicago.  If there are three things I love, they are growing food, my hometown, and family.  Sandbox Organics was my way of bringing them all together.  The goal was to grow enough vegetables in the family’s 400 square foot backyard (where my brothers and I grew up playing in the sandbox) to support a small Farm Share program, while engaging the community through workshops and volunteer days.  Today I’m happy for the opportunity to share the seasons bounty with the greater Chicagoland community.  Everything at the farm, now located in Hebron IL, is grown with sustainable practices, and delivered fresh to the city for you to enjoy.

“Sandbox organics provided excellent seasonal produce that allowed us to offer a true farm-to-table experience to our customers. It was always a treat to be able to talk with Yoram and see what was going to be harvested soon and then crafting a dish around his wonderful organic vegetables. Both my kitchen staff and my customers can’t wait for the upcoming season.”
