We couldn’t be happier that you’ve decided to pop by the site and learn about what drives us here at G’day.
Our mission is simple. We want to connect as many people like you with local farm fresh products. For us it’s more than just connecting people, it’s about helping you reconnect with the products you consume. Most of us don’t really think too much about where our food comes from. Grocery stores make the purchasing process quick and convenient. But there’s something you lose in that convince… an understanding.
Does traveling to a farm take time out of your day? Certainly! But with that decision to purchase directly from a farmer you’ll gain two important things.
An understanding of where your food comes from
Buzz words like “grass fed,” “hormone free,” and “free range” get thrown around all the time, leaving the consumer to put blind faith that those claims are true. And even if they’re true, what exactly does that all mean? Does “antibiotic free” mean the animal wasn’t treated if it was sick?
You want to know who can tell you exactly what went into your steak or chicken breasts? The farmer that produced them. Behind each bushel of apples, ear of corn, and striploin, there’s a farmer. And on small local farms, the buck starts and stops with them. They’re sales, marketing, customer service, and quality assurance, all wrapped up into one.
An appreciation for what goes into your food
You’ve probably never met the farmer that produced the food in your fridge. For most farmers it’s a labour of love. They would probably be doing it regardless of the pay. Speaking to someone with this level of passion for what they do gives one a tremendous sense of appreciation for the hard work that was put into their meal. Picking up a few steaks from a grocery store freezer and getting handed a wrapped package of steaks from the local farmer has a totally different feel to it. One’s a transaction, another is an experience.
A great meal fuels conversation, why not start yours with G’day?
Our blog section is where we’ll write about topics that we think are important to you, along with profiles on farms and events. If you have a topic that you’d like us to write an article about, please send us an email so that we can learn more about what you’ve got going on.
You’ll be surprised how many farm fresh options are less than forty five minutes away from where you’re sitting right now.
