Farm to Fork

Do you know where your food comes from?

One of the most popular requests we get from shoppers and Members is for more ‘Local.’

Although the names may be, the idea of Farm-to-Fork or Farm-to-Plate or Slow-Food isn’t a new one. In fact some restaurants, most popularly Chipotle, have built their business models on it.

“Farm-to-Table is a movement concerned with producing food locally and delivering that food to local consumers.”

Everyone has different motivations for their interest in the Farm to Fork movement.

Some are in search of the freshest or healthiest or tastiest ingredients. Others are dedicated to fostering the link between farmers and communities. There are increasing numbers whose interest is a backlash against genetically modified organisms in our food supply.

We embrace all these attitudes about food safety, food freshness, food seasonality, and small-farm economics, but we can boil our passion down to just one question:

“Wouldn’t you like to know where your food comes from?”

When our customers say they want more ‘Local,’ they mean that they want to know where their food comes from.

Do you want to know where your eggs or meat or tomatoes or parsnips or bread or even milk comes from? No problem, a large percentage of our products come from local producers.

We can tell you where your food comes from. In fact, we can introduce you to the actual farmer that produced the food that’s on your plate.
