Farm to Table
There is a growing movement in our country to support local farmers through Farm to Table initiatives. The benefits of this go far beyond simply strengthening our local economy (which alone has enough merit to join the movement). Voting with our wallets to support, local, organic farms sends a message that we value healthy, wholesome foods. Additionally, purchasing direct almost always saves the consumer money as well because you are essentially removing the middle men (food manufacturers and grocery stores) from the equation.
Janell Sycks has visited many of the farms throughout the southeast and has personal relationships with many of the farmers. She has detailed knowledge of the farming techniques employed on many of these local farms and has a list of farms that utilize humane animal practices that she has developed as a result of her research. She is a strong advocate of Farm to Table and has worked with local restaurants, schools, and companies to educate them on how to implement Farm to Table. She believes that there is a common misconception that adopting Farm to Table practices is more difficult than it is in reality. She enjoys taking clients and their families out to local farms and watching them integrate a Farm to Table lifestyle into their own homes.
