We are a nonprofit store that allows our local farmers/vendors a six-days-a-week brick and mortar market. A Meal That Counts as well as its farmers help to create sustainability for its communities by giving back to help fight food anxiety within the community. We opened our doors October 2020 and we have helped many families and seniors in our community since. We have partnered with 30+ vendors and farmers since opening. A Meal That Counts feeds over 35 families in the school district every other week and over 20+ seniors M-F. Our mission is to help bring our local farmers and community back together again creating sustainability with and for the community.
Our farm is 50 miles south of Kansas City in Adrian, MO. We offer grass-fed grass-finished beef & lamb, forest-raised pork, pasture-raised chicken and turkey. Our goal is to provide you with naturally raised wholesome food using regenerative farming methods that mimic the patterns found in nature. We use rotational grazing to raise our cattle and sheep. They are moved daily around our farm to new pastures and fresh forage. The chickens and turkeys live out on pasture in mobile coops. We move them every morning to a clean area of pasture where they can scratch and range for grasses and bugs in addition to their non-GMO feed.
What is forest-raised pork? Pigs that live in the forest! This is the ideal environment for a pig. They use their snout to root around and turn up the ground uncovering food on the forest floor. They also have access to non-GMO feed. Good bacon comes from happy pigs!
