Would you know what to look for when choosing a Farmer? That is, choosing a farmer to buy your family’s food from? Looking for clean food? Especially locally produced food, that can be a challenge.
We have been members of the Weston A Price Foundation (WAPF) for several years. About the time I was dealing with acid reflux, we were also investigating the startup of our farm. While researching problem gut issues and sustainable farming, it didn’t take long for both topics to mesh and lead us to WAPF.
A diet of low processed whole foods provides the “medicine” your body needs to heal and support itself. Where does one turn to source low processed whole foods? When available, your local farmer! Does the management carried out on the local farm affect the food produced? Absolutely. When it comes to meat, pasture grazed & grassfed is the preferred choice.
We recently completed and returned the WAPF Local Chapter Farm Visit Checklist. Please take a moment to see how we responded to the checklist questions.
Feel free to contact us and stop by for a visit anytime to personally verify our answers. We are happy to connect you with other local farms to visit and research.
