Family farms are the solution to many modern, food-related issues.
Many modern diseases never existed when we used unprocessed, FARM-FRESH FOODS in our diet. The fresh foods we have consumed for at least 30,000 years on every continent on the planet are, by far, nutritionally superior to food processed by modern methods.
By cutting out the middlemen, farmers earn a much better income and consumers pay FAIR PRICES that are equivalent to buying at an organic market. By connecting to your local farm you secure nutrient-dense, quality food for stable prices.
Good, organic-based farming and local buying of fresh food heal our environment. Family farming puts the care of the land back into the hands of the community.
Community-based agriculture and family farms protect the food supply of our community, city, and country, regardless of global economic forces.
Better Animal Husbandry:
We can protect our farm animals from harm, ensure them a dignified life and benefit from the superior foods that well-loved, well-tended animals give us.
Saving Family Farms:
Farmers deserve dignity. By supporting our local farmers, we free them from unfair corporate conditions to pursue higher quality of care for our animals, our land, and our food.
Community-based agriculture replaces bureaucracy with transparency, alienation with connection.
