After driving for about 30 minutes through beautiful Pennsylvania farm lands, we arrived at Hendrick’s Farm.
The best part was, Hendricks really values the local community. They work heavily with food Co-Ops (definition here) to place large orders of meats and provide incentives for families and communities that decide to participate. The BF and I are seriously considering starting one in our area- what a great way to feel tied to your neighbors and your food!
I understand you might be apprehensive about eating grass-fed beef vs. the regular store brand. But my friends the proof is in the pudding. After a few meals with the fresh bacon and chicken from Hendricks farm, I don’t know that we’ll go back to the grocery store for our meats.
Question of the day: Have you ever participated in a food co-op? How did you like it? Would you travel for your food if it meant it was more ‘natural’?
