When we say sustainable we mean 100% of our veggies, meat, and dairy are non-GMO, grass fed, and free pastured. All of the small family farms we work with follow these practices. It is important to us that every single step of our food system – from the soil, to the animals, to our farmers, and to you – is treated with great value and care.

We only work with Ohio Farmers who raise their animals on open pasture and grass. Check out our farm’s page for more information on the farms we work with, how they got started, and the delicious goodies they provide! 
While we always strive to get you the safest and freshest products, our products do not have additives so they may have a shorter shelf life date.

In line with the USDA Product Dating guidance document:

o A "Best if Used By/Before" date indicates when a product will be of best flavor or quality. It is not a purchase or safety date.
o A "Sell-By" date tells the store how long to display the product for sale for inventory management. It is not a safety date.
o A “Use-By" date is the last date recommended for the use of the product while at peak quality. It is not a safety date except for when used on infant formula as described below.
Are Foods Safe to Eat After the Date Passes?…………………….. With an exception of infant formula, if the date passes during home storage, a product should still be safe and wholesome if handled properly until the time spoilage is evident (Chill Refrigerate Promptly). Spoiled foods will develop an off odor, flavor or texture due to naturally occurring spoilage bacteria. If a food has developed such spoilage characteristics, it should not be eaten.
If your food subscription becomes inconvenient for you, you can cancel your box at any time, so why wait to get delicious food on your plate?! **See our detailed cancellation policy here.
