"We joined the IFC, because I like to know my steak was grazing the fields near Creston. My ground beef was humanely raised near Kellerton. I like knowing my cream-line milk, butter and cheese came from Waukon, and that my purchase allows these farmers to carry on the work they’ve dedicated their life to. I also like knowing that our purchase every two weeks helps preserve Iowa’s farmland, gives back more money to farmers and supports my community."
