Every day is Earth Day! We believe that doing right by our planet isn’t just about a few large nations and organizations doing a few big things, but rather many people doing many small things.
Think small but do it a lot… make the impossible possible.
Our Small Thoughts
Get more people eating more fruits and vegetables
Buy from small sustainable farms
Buy just what we need each week
Work with farmers to get the most from the harvest to the table
Deliver many bags to few places instead of a few bags to many places
Reuse and reduce packaging
Buy produce that our farmers grow best
Offering less of many things is better than a lot of a few things
Celebrate the diversity of food
Educate, learn and have fun
Accept what Mother Nature offers because in the end that is all there is
Small is Beautiful
Sustainable small farms focus on soil, plant and animal health. They grow produce that supports these principals rather than glittering grocery store shelves. They grow produce that thrives in their soils and climate, which reduces the necessity for chemical pesticides and fertilizers. They grow produce that is nutrient-rich, which means less is more for health. They are adaptable, they care, they work hard and fight the good fight every day.
