About Farm Cart:
Local Food Should Be Simple.
Finding local foods and supporting the folks who make it possible shouldn't be a chore. Farm Cart simplifies the process by curating weekly deliveries of fresh ingredients and delivering them to you. Did I mention there are recipes? LOTS of recipes!
What I'm all about:
Searching high and low for good local food really got my goat.
I knew it existed, but I was spending an inordinate amount of time and energy trying to find it: scrutinizing labels, going to multiple stores, getting frustrated when I missed the farmers market, or there weren't any eggs left! I decided to make it my job to make local food as easy as possible, and in June of 2019 I compiled the first-ever Farm Cart delivery.
If you're like me, you:
Want to eat fresh, healthy foods (most of the time.)
Care about how your food is produced - animal welfare, environmental stewardship, and the like.
Want to cook more, but don't always know where to start.
Like the idea of going to the farmers market every week (or every other week? when is it again?) but actually only make it a few times.
Think about signing up for a CSA program from a local farm, but usually don't - it's a big commitment!
Are busy with your family/work/hobbies/life and wish that sometimes someone else would step in, decide what to make for dinner, and do the shopping.
My name is Katie Plumb.
I was born and raised in Bozeman (Yes, we exist!) and returned home in 2014. I love stories, and I still want to be writer when I grow up. I actually fell in love with food through writing.
Farm Cart is my effort to make a difference for both the community and the landscape that nurtured me. I'd like to see as much land as possible remain in food production because I believe responsible agriculture is an essential piece of a strong local economy, a healthy ecosystem, and a well-knit community.
