So I’ve done posts before of the various avenues you can take to get your hands on some of Georgia’s ethical and sustainable food but Garnish & Gather takes it to a whole new level. Garnish & Gather works with local farmers to get you the freshest, most humanely raised food straight to your door and then teaches you how to cook it! Straight from their site, “With Garnish & Gather you are supporting local family farmers, giving back to Atlanta charities, helping local food artisans all while nourishing those you love with honest food. We are here to make a difference, not only in the way we eat but in the way we connect with our foods, our farmers and our community. There is a movement happening all around us. Join us in it.”
This movement is all about community and education. As I’ve said many times before, it takes work to find out where your food comes from. Thankfully, Garnish & Gather does the work for you. Take a look at all the local farms that they work with on a regular basis: http://garnishandgather.com/your-farmers.html. There’s hard working farmers raising their animals the way that was intended all around us. We just have to open our eyes and look.
Garnish & Gather allows you to have your meals delivered to your home or place of work or you can pick them up at a variety of locations within Atlanta and the surrounding areas. If you’re more skilled at cooking or just want some of the basics (bread, milk, cheese, raw meat, etc.) check out their provisions shop to load up on some local goodness. You can even find local sweets, tea, kimchi, vinegar and much more!
Support your local farmer. Support your local chefs. Support your local artisans. It’s getting easier and easier by the day, so why not join us?
