About Us

Fresh. Local. Organic. Farm Fresh Meals is a convenient way to enjoy healthy whole food that is tailored to your lifestyle, while supporting local businesses and saving time. Our simple, transparent approach to chef driven, fully-prepared meals means you never have to worry about extra sodium, preservatives, or other unnatural ingredients. Our ingredients are never frozen, and travel from the farm to our kitchen to your door every week.

We believe that everyone deserves a good meal, which is why for every meal purchased, Farm Fresh Meals donates to Feeding America.


Owner & Founder

Jeff Dougherty is passionate about bringing awareness to the benefits of maintaining a balanced whole food diet. After meeting so many other on-the-go families like his own that wanted high-quality, organic whole foods but didn’t have the time to personally source the best ingredients from local grocers, cook and clean each week, he created FarmFreshMeals.com. 

Jeff has called North County San Diego home since the early 90’s. He’s an avid surfer and runner, and if you ask him enough times he might even take you to one of his favorite (and secret) North County surf spots.


Advisor & Regular Customer

While technically a “Zonie,” Evan Larkin has called North County San Diego home since moving here from Arizona in 2010. He met Jeff shortly after Jeff started Farm Fresh Meals, and once he experienced the amazing flavors and the high quality of the food, he was hooked! Evan utilizes his background in start-ups, marketing, business development, and the restaurant industry to help Farm Fresh Meals reach as many San Diegans as possible.  

Evan uses our healthy meals to fuel his outdoor adventures like trail runs around the mountains in East County, or ski trips to Mammoth and Big Bear. (Jeff has still not shown him to one of his secret surf spots.)

Healthy Meals, Happy Customers

“Every single meal is so good! Love the convenience of the delivery too. Best way to eat healthy. The owners are amazing too!”

Deanne G.

“We love that they're local organic, farm-to-table meals and that you can opt for going grain-free which fits with our lifestyle. We've tried other meal delivery services over the years but Farm Fresh is by far the best quality as well as the best value for money.”

Evan S.

“Farm fresh meals taste AMAZING and come ready to heat and serve. The portions are very generous! My family thanks me nearly every night for finding this place. Give this place a try – you won’t regret it.”
