The purpose of our group is to connect the health conscious family with our local organic ranchers and farmers and establish a relationship with each other. To support local ranchers and farmers who grow their veggies, chickens, and beef organically without pesticides, hormones, steroids, and antibiotics. To visit their farms as a group (kids welcome too) and learn about their products, and how much healthier they are for us and our families. (Watch the movie: Food Inc). To learn how they manage their gardens, beef cattle operations, egg layers, and dairies. Buying organic food locally is a very important and crucial thing for us all to do, and let's connect with each other and the farmer's and ranchers around us. Make sure that if you RSVP YES for a farm tour that you show up; if your plans change, be sure to change your RSVP from YES to NO 2 days before the farm tour so the farmer is not waiting for you to show up and making special arrangements for you. Be sure to visit our online news and information site, www.eatgreendfw.com
