From Farm or Foreign?


In this day and age where everyone is demanding better food to table options, or buying their produce from local farms, there are those who find a way to profit from it.

I read a disturbing story about a large food company overseas that is using fake farm names to increase sales of imported meat, dairy and produce. They’ve bought up names like Willow Farms and the like to mislead customers into thinking they are buying from a local farm. In reality the products have been imported from other countries. There is nothing illegal about this practice because the product is still labeled correctly.

Word to the wise, if you are concerned where your food come from, read your labels. Better yet, investigate your local farms and farmers markets to be sure you are getting what you expect.
