By now, I’m sure you’ve heard of farm-to-table. But have you heard of farm-to-kitchen?
My husband and I recently decided to join Farm Fresh To You, a food/farm co-op program that delivers sustainable, organic foods produced by local farms straight to your door! Farm Fresh To You and other similar programs offer so many great benefits to both us as consumers and farmers, including:
More Nutritious and Flavorful Food
The produce provided by a CSA (community supported agriculture) or co-op program is typically harvested at its peak ripeness, after nutrients have had time to fully develop, and is then trucked shorter distances minimizing any potential loss of nutrients during transit
Farm Fresh To You allows you the opportunity to customize your farm box so you only receive produce you will actually use, minimizing waste, and then they deliver your selections meaning
Help The Environment
As many, if not all, of the farms in a CSA/Co-Op practice sustainable agriculture, their farming methods produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions, have less nitrogen-runoff from fertilizers and use fewer pesticides than large industrial farms. These products are typically trucked shorter distances than commercially produced foods, reducing the environmental impact and amount of resources required to
Support Local Farmers
Your participation in CSA or Co-Op programs mean that not only are you supporting local farmers, who are also supporting those who care for the fields, manage the farms equipment and harvest the crops, allowing everyone involved to make fairer wages
