For centuries coconuts and beach life have gone hand and hand. Down at Ditch Plains this summer, regardless of palm trees or lack there of, things are no different.
This year, in association with the Montauk Boardriders, the ever-popular Harmless Harvest coconut water brand will be operating out of the blue food truck in the parking lot at Ditch (the one with the bathrooms). Harmless Harvest, over the past few years, has become a staple East End beverage. Better yet, coconut water itself has become a staple East End drink, but everyone has their preference. Famous for their pink hued, highly hydrating drink, Harmless Harvest has certainly been one of the favorites as it’s sold in East End hotspots such as Naturally Good, Joni’s, Jack’s Stir Brew, Mary’s Marvelous and SoulCycle.
Last year the truck was home to a family owned and operated snack truck by the Boardriders, where they sold candy, bagels and an array of other quick and easy eats. This year though, they have looked to the healthy alternative thanks to the help of the San Francisco based coconut water brand.
This summer the menu consists of an array of foods coming from all raw, ethically sourced and healthy brands, mostly from the New York area. Harmless Harvest has taken the “pop-up” idea and implemented it into the food truck world with Boardriders. Therefore, the menu will include Harmless Harvest products such as their staple pink coconut water and coffee infused coconut water, pre-juiced juices, yogurts and other healthy snacks.
“We are looking forward to bringing a healthy alternative to the beach, and excited about being able t0 give people that option,” said Billy Stewart of Harmless Harvest.
At the end of the day, coconut water is one of the most hydrating drinks known to this world, and Harmless Harvest has taken the intitiative to get it to the sun kissed, dehydrated people on the beaches of Ditch Plains. So keep an eye out for them and be sure to stop by and say what’s up or grab a cold one … a cold coconut water that is — save the beers for post beach.
