FreshTableFarms is joining a movement of traditional food chain disrupters. We need fresh high quality produce and fish grown locally, to supply restaurants and grocery stores with high quality organic goods in every urban zone in the US! Our mission is to bring aquaponic and sustainable agriculture businesses, education and access to the right technologies into communities in South Florida and beyond.
Access to safe, healthy food is quickly becoming the number one priority for the twenty-first century. Our oceans, streams, and outdoor farms are being poisoned. Potable water and fresh wild fish are fast becoming scarce resources. Food is shipped all over the world in an international trading market that too often shows little regard for the quality and safety of their products, and companies sometimes fail to manage well in a complex logistical world of perishable goods. In the USA a premium organic market has emerged as a reaction to food health and other issues.
Meanwhile, also in the USA, poverty and hunger have increased. Even as the organic market grows, so too grows a larger and larger population that struggles for access to good fresh food at an affordable price. We now have more than 49 million US citizens who live in food insecure households. That is a huge number of people who are suffering, not knowing where their next meal will come from, many of them children.
At the heart of things we believe a social conscience and some really efficient food production technology is all that is required to address this growing need. But in reality we know that to fix the problem it takes money and an organized community effort directed at educating people, especially children, so they will always know how to feed themselves.
Join us with our farm cooperative partner, sustainable poultry farm TheFancyChicken, as we explore farm to table from the farm side.
