TexasRealFood is about promoting food businesses in Texas that share these values and live them every day. This includes, for example, local family farms and ranches, artisan food producers and the restaurants that buy their products.
We don’t believe so much in fancy food labels like “certified organic” (although they have their place). Often, the original principals associated with these labels (for example animal welfare) are undermined today by large industrial food corporations.
At TexasRealFood, we have much more faith in the family rancher who is not certified organic but does a lot more for animal welfare and sustainable food production than most certified organic farms. Thus, the term “beyond organic” was coined a few year ago and it represents perfectly what TexasRealFood os about.
