We offer solutions to farmers looking for an alternative to losing their investment and wasting the food they dedicate their lives to growing.
Farmer’s Choice was founded in 2016 to provide farmers and non-profits with new and innovative markets for fresh and wholesome produce. With a lifetime of experience in growing, packing and shipping, our team knows where the greatest opportunities are for enabling producers to reduce waste, protect their investment and help feed their neighbors in need.
We connect growers to nonprofits who need their wholesome but unmarketable produce. We negotiate pricing for packaging, labor and shipping that maximizes the charitable funds and offsets the growers’ costs associated with donating. Our founder has placed greater than 200 million pounds of food that will feed hungry people instead of rotting in a landfill or in the field.
We are a for profit with the heart of a nonprofit. Our relationships with growers and traditional, for-profit purchasers earn us the credibility to offer innovative solutions that benefit everyone. About one-third of food grown in the US will never make it to the store because of the way it looks or a change in the market demand. This means lost profits for growers and missed opportunities for food banks and the people they serve.
