This program is affordable, convenient and absolutely delicious. Becoming a member in the Good Food Buyers Club allows you easy access to local produce, proteins and farm fresh specialty items --- all at great prices. You can choose from both organically and conventionally grown menus of items.
The Good Food Family Farms brand is food grown by farmers in a cooperative with Good Food for Good People. Regular farm visits, production planning and inspections assure the consumer that their food is raised in farming systems that abide by the highest organically/naturally grown standards. This food is free of synthetic chemicals and GMO inputs and carries the Good Food seal of inspection and approval.
The Love Local brand features food from farms in our immediate region who raise food using conventional farming methods. This may include the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides, GMO (genetically modified organism) inputs and even some anti-biotics. In other words, it is grown like the food most of us eat every day. The differences are that we know the farmers, we monitor them and encourage the best farming practices and as much as 90% of what you pay goes directly to the farmer.
There are foods that all people should have access to that belong in all healthy diets. Nuts, whole grains, greens, fruit and legumes make the base of a healthy food pyramid. Whether they are locally grown or not, in season or not, they are vital to health. This line of offerings were selected by a highly qualified seasoned dietitian. Buying these items in bulk and breaking them into smaller quantities is our way of making them available and affordable. We hope you will give our healthy and affordable foods a try.
