My research gives you wonderful places to choose from; Farm to Table, Co-op’s, Grocery stores, Online shopping for delivery service and more that support food allergies.
Farm to Table
This is a movement concerned with producing food locally and delivering that food to the local consumers. It incorporates a form of “food trace-ability”, knowing where the food comes from and where the origin of the food is identified to consumers.
You also may have heard some of the terms “sustainable agriculture, organic farming, free-range and fair trade”. I share detailed information about the importance of these terms on the website and also in our workshops and seminars.

A Co-op’s top priority is to provide you Farm to Table products. Our local co-op’s work with Minnesota Organic Farms and sustainable agriculture. Organic farming benefits us because they provide food that is “safe” for us to eat.
Now, this is the type of food you want on your table. Farm to Table meals is a priority to be prepared in our Farr Better Recipes®.
