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!
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.
