What are you actually eating? Does the staff have any idea where the food comes from?
In a candle shop, floral dealer or fabric store the employees know what the products are made of + where they come from. Why do food employees have NO IDEA what they are offering? In Dallas, even most finer dining restaurants are serving FACTORY FARM animal products + shipped-in, pesticide-sprayed produce. Food should travel the shortest distance possible to retain nutrients + flavor. And not be filled with chemicals (duh).
There are lots of smaller, natural farms all over the USA. It's not too much to ask.
Below is a list of local Dallas-area restaurants + grocers and an extensive local Texas farms list.
(So often, I hear from restaurant owners - I don't know where to find the BETTER farms! Well, here ya go... :D)
