Being a vegetarian, I'm a huge fan of vegetables. It's pretty much all I've got. ha. A while back Cheryl introduced me to Farmhouse Delivery over lunches at the Stash Factory. Farmhouse is a 'Farm to table' concept that pulls from local growers around Austin and Houston. After Cheryl introduced me to some of the weekly bushels and other products (ie eggs. cheese, Kosmic Kombucha!), I was in. I'm now on my second bushel from Farmhouse and I couldn't be more pleased. Other than making weekly deliveries, they send out emails letting you know what's coming in the delivery, where it's from, cooking tips, and markers to let you know which is organic and/or sustainable. Below is what hit my mailbox the morning of the delivery.
...like I said, I've been a vegetarian for a long time and it's easy to think that because you aren't eating meats, you are avoiding a lot of the issues in 'factory farming', but after a long discussion with Cheryl last night over sustainable farming and what you can feed crops and pass as legal, I am ready to never stray away from organic/sustainable produce. ever. It's a scary world out there when you do your research.
Whether you just like quality, or you care about what's feeding the things that are feeding you, or supporting local business, OR you just hate going to the grocery store, you should look into what 'farm to table' co-ops your city offers.
