Irvine’s Zucchini Xpress, run by Jutta and Jesus Gamboa and Allison Brown, acts as a gatekeeper for its clientele, vetting farms, ranchers and even honey and olive oil suppliers.
Orange County is reclaiming ownership for food production, reconnecting to the land and cultivating a new generation of environmental stewards.

Jesus & Jutta Gamboa make a visit to The Appropriate Omnivore as they let the listeners know about all of the farm fresh, local, and organic produce that they offer with their community supported agriculture (CSA), Zucchini Xpress. Aaron explains all about why CSAs are a great and convenient way to get real food straight to your door. The Zucchini Xpress surpasses many other CSAs as they not only offer produce, but also great grass fed beef, olive oil, raw honey, chocolate, and coffee. And Jesus and Jutta want to include even more types of food as well as expand the geographical area where people can join. Jesus and Jutta also have an online magazine, Free Range Zucchini, that’s filled with recipes and resources where people can find organic food.

The right vegetable can really make all the difference.
One local couple knows that difference and has founded ZucchiniXpress to help share it with Newport Beach residents.
Husband and wife team Jesus Gamboa and Jutta Whitaker-Gamboa, along with their business partner Alison Brown, agree that eating organic, biodynamic, seasonal and locally grown fruits and vegetables is much better than eating vegetables from the store, so they started ZucchiniXpress, a local organic fruit and vegetable delivery service.

ZucchiniXpress is on a mission to connect people with the best organic and seasonal produce in Orange County.
The Irvine-based company was formed after its owners, Jesus and Jutta Gamboa, said they failed to find great organic produce in their local supermarkets.
