Eco Friendly Packaging

Love Our planet

Once Upon a Farm is committed to continuously innovating and improving to provide the most eco-friendly packaging possible, reducing our carbon footprint wherever we can. We take our food safety and quality seriously, seeking out materials that are both eco-friendly and that also preserve the safety, integrity and quality of our products.

Our packaging and services are designed with efficiency in mind. You get to skip a trip to the grocery store, and your baby food gets delivered on shared trucks direct to your doorstep. Since our boxes never travel by themselves, this minimizes resources and fuel, and reduces our overall carbon footprint, leaving the earth a little bit better for generations to come.
