Columbia
raised and
From the ground to the plate, the path our
food takes impacts us all. We're celebrating
family-owned farms in and around Columbia
that let us witness first-hand where our food
comes from.

AT T H E S TA R T O F T H E 2 0 T H
C E N T U R Y, most of the food we
consumed came from within 50 miles
or so of where we ate it. But as the
culture at-large shifted from largely
rural to urban, our food sources moved
further and further away. So much of the
modern food industry became invisible to
consumers, ultimately raising questions
about just exactly what we're eating.
Most of the grocery-store produce we
encounter today travels hundreds of miles,
often picked well before it's ripened and

sprayed with chemicals to reduce spoilage
during transit. In response, consumers
are increasingly recognizing the value of
seasonality, freshness, and small farm
economics. We're embracing the value of
local produce-ripened on the vine, full of
flavor, and picked right before it's eaten.
Farm to Table is an expression we're
hearing a lot these days, and for good
reason. Simply put, the farm to table
movement is about reducing the distance
your food travels from the farm to your
plate, and appreciating your food's

origins. Fueled by foodies, farmers, and
restaurateurs, this movement has taken
hold in Columbia and is changing how we
think about what we eat. As it becomes
about even more than the food itself, this
movement is helping to foster a greater
sense of community and fresh hope for
the future.

in-town sustainable farm. Founded in
2009, City Roots is widely recognized for
its achievements in urban, organic, and
sustainable farming.
