3 Habits for a New Year

It’s 2022 — It’s a fresh start. An opportunity to refocus our efforts on what is good and pure and nourishing for our bodies…probably the opposite of what we just experienced over the holiday season.
If food is part of your new year transformation, here are three simple and easy tweaks that can fit any food journey:

1. Buy one more item from a local farmer than you did last year

Maybe you buy mostly from the grocery store, or maybe you already are a champ at supporting local farmers. Either way, pick one food item that you commonly purchase at the store and commit to sourcing it locally in 2022.

Getting to know a local farmer is a great way to connect yourself to your food’s journey. You’ll see where that item was grown or raised and the hands who raised it. You can ask questions about food quality and purity instead of just reading store labels. And you’ll help support a local farmer who is feeding a family and making a living.

At Jako Farm, our livelihood depends on people like you who understand that value of pure, wholesome food. There are grocery stores closer, convenience food cheaper. But you choose Jako Farm. We appreciate you so much!

2. Examine the quality of one food item you buy regularly

Pick something you eat regularly. Maybe it’s ground beef or tortillas or milk. Research the item and try to figure out who grew or made it. How was it made? How does the nutrition compare with other similar options?

Take ground beef, for example. If the store label says ‘grassfed,’ research the company. Do their cows eat only grass? Or do they get grain when “grass is not available”? Why does that matter? Research the nutritional difference between grain-fed and grass-fed meat. Buy both kinds and do a taste comparison, just for fun.

When you’ve done the research, challenge yourself to raise the level of purity in that food item for 2022.

At Jako Farm, we’ve found that when you take a step up in food quality, the health benefits are enormous. People who eat good food like JakoPure food don’t get sick as often, don’t eat as much to feel full, don’t snack as much, and prevent a myriad of future illnesses. It pays to buy quality food.

3. Let Jako Farm help
At Jako Farm, we would love to walk with your food journey. We’ve fed picky eaters. We’ve managed food intolerances. We’ve heard so many stories and swapped so many food ideas and learned so much.  
Whether you’re new to the idea of pure food or an old pro, you’re not alone. We’d love to hear your story and help make the journey a little easier.
If you’re in the Wichita metro area, one easy way we can help is through our Wichita food delivery. Every other Tuesday evening we meet Jako members at a west Wichita and an east Wichita drop spot to deliver JakoPure food straight from the farm. This is a perk offered only to our Jako Farm Members! We know we’re a bit of a drive, so let us do the drive for you. 

We love meeting new members!

We love introducing new people to Jako Farm! Thanks for telling your family and friends about us. Robyn is available by appointment for new member orientation Monday through Saturday from 9-5. Please call 620-663-1470 to schedule your/their first visit.
Happy New Year and a healthy food journey to everyone!
