The mission of FamilyFarmed.org is to expand the production, marketing and distribution of locally grown and responsibly produced food, in order to enhance the social, economic and environmental health of our communities.
FamilyFarmed.org is a sophisticated system designed to connect local food producers with trade buyers and consumers on a regional level. The organization works directly with family farmers as well as with local and national organizations that serve farmers and are working to build local food systems. FamilyFarmed.org helps consumers and trade buyers develop trusting relationships with farmers and artisanal food producers by sharing information about their values and production methods.
We also work through our website, annual FamilyFarmed EXPO, and Chicagoland CSA Guide to educate the public about eating locally grown food, supporting farm families, and becoming members of local CSA programs.
