Fresh from the farm by ProQuest


Fresh From the Farm, an alternative food store in Toronto, makes it possible for urban families to enjoy meats and other foods produced using traditional methods on farms owned by Old Order Mennonites and Amish families in the Waterloo area of western Ontario. The products appeal to people who are looking for drug- and hormone-free meats, and to environmentalists who promote "food localism," a philosophy that encourages support for local family farms in order to reduce oil consumption in food transportation."We had no idea how many people in Toronto were looking for a place where they can make a personal connection to their food," [Tim] says, adding that besides knowing that the meat has been produced using traditional, natural methods, "they like to know about the family with 11 children that raised the chickens."
