We work with a growing number of local farmers. Many have urban farms right here inside the City of Atlanta. Some are located just outside the perimeter. And some are in the deep country doing their thing while staying connected to Atlanta.
None of our farmers use pesticides on their produce, preferring instead to grow naturally and sustainably. Their individual commitment to cultivate the earth and our food in a way that is sustainable and has a beneficial ecological impact means that we can stand by the food in our store.
Having farms so close by also allows us to offer our community some of the freshest produce that is locally grown.
Here are some videos to get you acquainted with a few of our favorite farmers:
