The Yellowbird Foodshed partners with a network of small, sustainable farms in order to provide a direct connection from the farm to your table. Through the weekly food box program, we give the community a convenient way to access fresh, local food and have a true connection between farm to fork.
The Yellowbird Foodshed provides weekly food box shares during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons at several different locations throughout the metropolitan area of Columbus, Ohio. Each share will contain a variety of fresh, local food that is grown using sustainable agriculture practices and completely source-identified so you will know exactly which farmer to thank! All you have to do is pick the time and place and meet us there.
The Yellowbird Foodshed is committed to hyper-local food and provides complete traceability so you will have a true connection from field to fork. When we say fresh, we truly mean fresh. Our partnership with a network of local farms allows us to plan and make sure that we deliver a product that is harvested at its peak and delivered directly to you. Did we mention bragging rights are included?
The local food found in our weekly food box is full of flavor, texture and nutrients because it is raised in a healthy, biodiverse environment located within 100 miles of Columbus, Ohio. Why choose food from thousands of miles away when it is being grown by small, sustainable farms within our community?
We only partner with farms who have chosen not to use harsh chemicals and practice sustainable agriculture methods that cultivate both the plant and the soil. We understand how difficult it has become to try to determine the meaning of all the different labels that are now used to describe our food so we wanted a place where people could trust that the food is good for both your health and the environment. We are also proud to say that the farms we work with are committed to fair wages for each of its workers.
