A Bite of Justice


| August 6, 2003


Hogs that see the light of day! Cows that slowly munch on grass! Now you need go no further than your computer for hams, cheeses, jams, and coffees that are produced sustainably, safely, and without growth hormones or continuous use of antibiotics. The Supermarket Coop is a web site dedicated to providing a marketplace for family farms and rural co-ops. They feature cheeses from the Family Farm Defenders, a group of Wisconsin farmers and hams from the Patchwork Family Farms, a group of fifteen Missouri farms. The family farms are dedicated to raising their animals in a socially responsible way, using environmental stewardship and treating their animals humanely. The site also hosts Equal Exchange Coffee, which is shade grown, certified organic and purchased entirely from small farmer cooperatives using Fair Trade Standards. The web site is one way to assure that farmers receive a fair price for their products. If you are what you eat then food from the Supermarket Coop is like taking a big bite of justice.
