Wholistic Farms Outreach, Inc is a nonprofit corporation that we started to benefit the people of our local community in and around Jasper County, GA. We know that there is a difference between conventionally grown, chemical covered food and organically produced food. To produce food organically costs more in soil building inputs and labor. These inputs make it cost more to purchase for the consumer. We believe that everyone needs Healthy Food! This organization was put together to make Healthy and Nutritious food available to those in the area who could not normally afford it.
Our goal is to plant three times our previous growing space for 2017, along with tripling the size of our laying hen flock. Given these increases, we plan to produce an extra 6000lbs of produce and an additional 700 dozen eggs to donate to local food banks. Jasper County Community Food Bank struggles to get fresh food, not to mention organically grown food. The majority of the food they, and food banks in general, have to offer those in need is highly processed, high in sodium, and low in nutrition. Our community deserves better! Our elderly and those in need require healthy nutritious food to help them get and stay well... Not make them sick or sicker.
Our current global food system is broken. Highly processed foods are causing an epidemic of diabetes and other obesity related diseases. Those eating conventionally grown fruits and vegetables are ingesting large amounts of toxins from pesticides and synthetic fertilzers that are applied both directly to the food, the growing plant, and the soil they are grown in. Many of these toxins are being directly linked to cancer.
