Project Localize Student Artwork: Local Source to School
"Five Acre Farms partners with farmers like Jake Samascott to help them access new markets that would be difficult for them to tap on their own. Whenever consumers see the Five Acre Farms label, they know they can trust the quality of the product.
According to the USDA 2.5% of all farms account for 59% of total farm income. Five Acre Farms Links smaller farmers to regional consumers, helps them compete and stimulates the local economy. Five Acre Farms develops, distributes, and markets local products, allowing its farmers to focus on high quality production. The process is transparent and the farmers profit directly from the sales. The company vets its farmers to ensure sustainable farming practices.
