Founded and operated by a second-generation, organic farming family, fieldTRUE was created to build a better, more sustainable and transparent food system by connecting local communities to their farmers and food makers. With early roots in the organic farming movement of the 1970s, our philosophy today is much the same ─ develop and grow farm box services that invest in local economies, broaden access to fresh healthy produce and connect consumers to the land and people who grow and make their food.
We manage resources in ways that work with the natural environment and local communities to preserve the ability of future generations to grow, harvest, and distribute high quality organic produce. Economic sustainability refers to the ability of small and mid-sized farms to remain in business and grow. Environmental sustainability means raising food crops year after year while maintaining the health and fertility of the soil, as well as clean air and waterways.
We want you to be able to make informed choices about the food you buy and eat. We share our farming and food safety practices with our members through our farm box websites, social media, customer newsletters and, as possible, farm events and tours. fieldTrue farm boxes consistently bring to market high-quality produce, local farm products and natural grocery, focusing on variety, freshness and seasonality.
You are helping sustain small and mid-sized farms and makers, provide local jobs, and ensure farmworkers have a competitive wage and healthy working conditions. Buying your food seasonally and regionally reduces food miles from transporting food long distances and assists fieldTRUE in providing food donations to your neighbors in need.
We are an energized and forward-thinking group of farmers and community members inspired to change the food system. At fieldTRUE, we love to share knowledge about and access to organic, sustainable farming practices, exemplary food safety standards, whole farm products and healthy eating. We encourage and support each other as we strive to live healthier lifestyles, eat a broad variety of seasonal, local fruits and vegetables, and connect with the people and land that grow our food.
