Yes we know these are not local. However we know many you partner families have requested that we help you source food that is grown and produced with the same skill craft and integrity as our local partner farmers, even when the farms may be a long way off.
This Granola from Tierra Farms is a wonderful example. Tierra Farms started out as an Organic vegetable farm near the Finger Lakes Region of New York, and when their customers started asking for nuts – it lead them to expand their scope beyond veggies. They quickly realized, as we did, it was difficult to source organic, consciously grown and processed nuts, and that much of what is available at supermarkets are just poor quality.
These nuts, fruits and grains are sourced from farms they have had longstanding relationships with. Tierra Farms does all the processing at their farm in an environmentally sensitive way. Over 70% of their electricity is generated from solar power on the farm, they only use sea salt and their packaging is at least 50% recycled. Both through their communications and relationships with growers they are able to maintain very high levels of organic integrity as well as ensure fair business practices.
They also have a commitment to sell most of their product through food coops and independent grocery stores and are an employee owned and run company.Enjoy this granola with milk, or some creamy Butterworks yogurt. A delicious and nutritious breakfast!
