You Can Help Sustainable Farmers Break Down Grocery Store Barriers

Our readers know that organic and natural (sustainable) farmers and ranchers around Omaha and Kansas City are locked out of high-end grocery stores like Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe’s and Sprouts. These companies buy the vast majority of their organic and natural products from outside of our trade area.

Please see Pickups vs Semi Trucks for more.

As long as this money leaves the Missouri Valley, we cannot afford modern farming technology that can drive down the rates of fossil fuel and pumped water consumption, along with confinement feeding. With the right buildings and equipment (and financing), we can produce a full range of seasonal grains, fruit, vegetables, meat, and even fish!

You Can Help!

If you or someone you know works in any of the industries or disciplines listed below, please let us know. We are interested in discussing partnerships to design, finance and market facilities and equipment for pasture-based agriculture.

Our Raised Free website explains how marketing, finance and technology work together to build sustainable farms and food businesses.

Thank you.
