Farms & Food Artisans

Most of the farmers we work with are exclusively small family farms or businesses. We avoid factory farms and CAFOs and their unsustainable and unhealthy practices. We get to know our farmers and understand the methods that they use and the humane way that they treat their animals. Animals are free range, pasture-raised and are never given antibiotics, hormones or fed animal by-products. Whenever we can, we source from certified organic farms or farms that use organic practices.

Currently only 7% of food dollars stay within its community. When we buy locally, we help to keep the majority of those dollars circulating within and supporting the local economy.

The foods that we provide are nutritionally better and taste better. This is because of how they were raised and fed. The nutritional level of naturally small farm raised foods is higher than commercial foods. And because they are raised locally, they get to you faster, which means fresher. This is more in line with how our grandparents and great-grandparents consumed food.

Our mission is to find local farmers and processors who have farming methods that are healthy, humane and sustainable. They often have challenges reaching the local markets that require refrigerated transportation and links to restaurants and markets. We get to know our farmers and processors and we learn how they operate their enterprises. This helps us determine if they fit our requirements for practices that are healthy, sustainable and humane. We strive to work within 150 miles of our warehouse in Ann Arbor and we work exclusively with small family farms. Happily, every year we see more people starting small farms and we see existing farmers converting to healthier and more sustainable practices. Buying local is here to stay. We currently serve Ann Arbor, Detroit, Lansing, Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids!

I think using animals for food is an ethical thing to do, but we've got to do it right. We've got to give those animals a decent life and we've got to give them a painless death. We owe the animal respect.
