Our mission is to connect Kansas City with locally grown, organic and free range foods. You know you are getting real, organically grown food because our farmers agree to grow according to our pledges. Read our Farmer Pledges.

By supporting these farmers you are helping to grow the local economy, pay farmers a fair wage, and vote with your dollar by supporting something much better than the industrial food system.

Plus, it's fun and the food tastes amazing.

The availability of locally grown foods in our area increases every year as more people realize the many benefits of eating local, organic, and free-range. Here are some of the ways you can buy locally grown foods.

  • CSAs

    Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) offers subscription buying for local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.

  • Farmer’s Markets

    Farmer's Markets are open-air outlets where anywhere from a few to dozens of farmers/producers regularly gather throughout the growing season to sell their fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, dairy foods, and other items.

  • Restaurants

    Restaurants are another way to eat local, organic and free range. Our farmers have provided us with a list of area restaurants that serve local, organic and free range food.

  • Know Your Farmer

    We feel it's important for you to know where your food comes from. Our Farmer's Directory provides you easy access to local and regional farms committed to organic and free range farming practices. Many farms also have farmstands — a great reminder that all food comes from the land.
