In the seven generations that the Coombs family has been in the maple business, farming has changed dramatically. Small family farms have been largely replaced by industrial agriculture, with significant consequences for the environment, our rural communities, and the quality and safety of our food.
As tradition has been traded for convenience, the connection we feel to our food and where it comes from has been eroded.
At Coombs Family Farms, we support small family farms because we believe they provide more than high quality food. They help restore those lost feelings of connection and meaning by providing opportunities for us to play a more fully-engaged role in determining where the foods we eat come from, how our food is produced, and how it gets to our table.
Small farms also strengthen rural economies, preserve important ecosystems, and help to protect a way of life that is increasingly under threat.
By choosing Coombs Family Farms products, you are helping to sow the seeds for a healthier, more sustainable society. That’s no drop in the bucket.
