Sprout Soapbox

Was tipped to this by a Farm to Family post: the folks at Sprout explain what they do:

We deal primarily with small independent farms, rather than larger industrial farms, in order to ensure that our products are locally grown and well treated. It is often true that small local farms have higher prices, which in turn makes our prices a little higher than other restaurants, but the quality of the products we get far exceeds the difference in price. Some of the reasons for the higher prices are due to the cost of labor for smaller farms, the natural growing practices rather than herbicide and pesticide ridden growing, the lack of government subsidies to smaller farms, and the more natural/heirloom variety plants rather than hybridized or GMO produce. The cost of such quality repays itself in your health and in the support you provide to your community.
