As some of you may know, there have been an increasing amount of food recalls this years and it reminds us how dangerous some food products can be. The FDA documented 414 food recalls in the third quarter of 2012 alone and is largely due to mislabeling and contaminated ingredients. Luckily, America’s Farmstand, an e-commerce website, is offering an alternative to shopping in grocery stores.
America’s Farmstand is an online retailer that is dedicated to providing a direct link between family farmers and consumers. Todd Greenfield, founder of America’s Farmstand, believes that independent, family farms are a largely untapped solution to the large-scale food recalls. The retailers offers organic, all-natural and pure farm-fresh artisanal foods that are shipped directly from independently run family farms.
“On small plots of land from Maine to California the next generation of growers are innovating how we farm–without chemicals, carcinogens or contamination. At America’s Farmstand we are replacing the anonymous, placeless food of industrial agriculture with honest, thoughtful family farms that have been farming the same land for, on average, 75 years. We believe it is critically important to know where your food comes from in an era of genetically modified, pesticide-heavy industrial farming,” says Todd.
The website brings you right up close and personal with the people who are providing you your food, giving customers the knowledge and satisfaction that their food is coming from the right place. Make sure you read all about the company, the farmers, and what you can purchase through the website. It’s the perfect time of year to give someone a gift that you know they will love. Happy shopping!
