Shopping for your groceries online is simple, cost effective, and downright awesome. But, like with all new things, you probably have questions. Here we answer your most burning questions and offer up all sorts of interesting tidbits about what we do, how we do it, and why it matters.
There are so many fabulous reasons to shop with Mile High Organics, the question should really be why not shop with us! Here's a quick breakdown of what makes us different —and what's in it for you:
• Colorado's Only GMO-free grocer. No label reading, no wondering what you're eating. We do the work for you.
• More organic. Our store is over 70% organic —more than any other grocer. Our produce selection is 100% organic, 100% of the time.
• Easy online ordering and home delivery —We pack your groceries and deliver them to your door. No driving, no lines, no hassle. What's not to like?
• Highest quality. Our produce quality can't be matched. Every order is handpicked by our experts and carefully packed just for you.
• Cost competitive pricing. We'll have you asking, "How do we do it?!". Our prices are cost competitive with other major retailers, plus we do the extra screening and bring it to your door!
• We're flexible. You buy what you want, when you want. No minimums or restrictions. We even offer multiple delivery days.
• Unparalelled transparency. In the case of a recall we can actually trace the product to your order and notify you. We bet your current grocer can't do that!
• Local love. You love supporting local businesses and agriculture. So do we! Buy your favorite local products through Mile High Organics and support twice the local businesses with one purchase. It's so meta!
Our prices are cost competitive with other major grocery retailers. In addition to competitive pricing we offer exclusive member specials and in-bin promotions weekly.
Not to mention the time you save by avoiding the hassle of the grocery store! The adage "Time is Money" rings true at Mile High Organics and we're on a mission to give you more of it. The average American makes over 100 trips to the grocery store every year —stop schleping and let us do the work for you.
We deliver in 200 zip codes up and down the Front Range —from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins. For information about our services in your exact zip code please call (303) 835-1212. Here is a handy list of the major towns we serve.
You can shop our entire store anytime before your order cut-off time —except for organic produce. In order to offer you the best of what's fresh, organic produce items (fruits, veggies & herbs) populate the Wednesday before the coming delivery week (delivery weeks run Sunday through Saturday). With the exception of organic produce items, your account allows you to shop up to four weeks into the future.
Your order cut-off time is 10 a.m. the day before the order delivery day. After this point you will not be able to edit your order in your account.
Our members love the convenience of next day delivery, but well all completely space sometimes! If you've forgotten to add anything to your order, please give us a call and we'll do our very best to delight you. Member Care is open Monday - Sunday, 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. (303) 835-1212.
All delivery options are setup as recurring for the convenience of our members who enjoy the consistency of their deliveries. Don’t be alarmed, you can add and remove recurring items from the “My recurring items tab” at anytime. Once you get into the swing of having groceries delivered, recurring items will be a no-brainer. Imagine, you can put items you buy every week on recurring order and they'll automatically arrive on your delivery day —shopping with Mile High Organics is really that easy!
The answer is easy, you don't! Shopping with Mile High Organics eliminates check out lanes and lugging groceries home. Simply place items in your shopping cart and whatever is in your cart come cut-off time is what we bring to your door the very next day.
Most of our members do not experience delivery fees, due to our various delivery options. We've built the cost of delivery into our produce bins so there is never any separate delivery charge.* Delivery is charged separately for custom shopping options, but waived for orders over $75.00. If you do all of your grocery shopping with us you’ll likely not experience any fee.
*A small $2.50 fee applies to orders in Colorado Springs and Evergreen.
Your order arrives anytime between 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. on your specified delivery day. It's a big window because our delivery drivers adjust their routes daily, based on fuel efficiency. The good news? You do not need to be at home! Your order is custom packed in a plastic tote, lined with insulating material and ice packs. We guarantee the freshness of everything inside until midnight on the day of your delivery.
Our whole business is certified organic, just like an apple or a box of crackers. This means that our facilities and processes are subject to strict rules, approved by the National Organic Program (NOP), and regulated by the FDA. What it means for you is that our entire business is audited by a thrid party on a regular basis to ensure that all of our organic products are what we say they are.
Because of this auditing process, and our online business model, we can trace every product we send to your home all the way back to the date it was received. In the case of a recall we can actually identify and notify individuals who received a recalled product. It's a whole other level of transparency and safety that a brick-and-mortar store could never attain.
A product bearing the USDA Organic seal has been subject to rigorous regulations designed to protect humans from harmful chemicals & pesticides, to protect the environment, and to protect livestock. All USDA certified organic products are GMO-free by definition. Read more about what organic means here.
A GMO-free grocer is a pretty new thing, in fact, we’re the only ones we know of! Being GMO-free means that we screen every ingredient of every product we sell for possible genetically modified ingredients. Other grocers may support GMO labeling initiatives, but we go the extra step and actually leave these products off the shelves. Every product in our store has been rigorously analyzed by our in-house experts. USDA certified organic products are GMO-free by definition. Read more about our screening process here.
A Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) is an organism (animal or plant) that is created in a laboratory. Scientists interbreed two completely separate species to produce the new organism. This means a corn plant could be interbred with an insect to produce a new species of corn that could never naturally exist. Read more about GMO's and why we screen them out here.
Absolutely! We support local companies and producers —we're local too. The Rocky Mountain region has so many amazing farmers and ranchers who raise products perfectly suited to the local environment. Our USDA certified organic lamb from the mountains of northern New Mexico, or quinoa produced high in the San Juan Mountains reflect the best of our unique region.
We work directly with Colorado farmers and producers. Orchards like Ela Family Farms use their experience as Colorado natives to produce the tastiest fruit imaginable. Greenhouse operations like Circle Fresh Farms and Hazel Dell Mushrooms allow us to bring you local produce all year long. You'll also find all of your favorite local grocery brands like Justin's Nut Butters and Rudi's!
