Three Farmers

THE FIRST 5 PEOPLE TO COMMENT ON THIS ARTICLE WILL GET A CARE PACKAGE COURTESY OF THREE FARMERS!

Ever wonder where your food comes from? Of course, you know it came from the store or the restaurant where you just paid money for it. But where did it come from before that? There was once a time when we could trace the origins of our food directly to the local farmers or butchers. What with mass manufacturing and the ability to freeze and ship food all over the world, we no longer have the luxury of knowing exactly where our food comes from, who helped grow or make it, and what all is in it. Three Farmers is changing that.

This Canadian company is on the mission to reconnect farmers with consumers by bringing sustainable, quality food products to the market. The three farmers for which Three Farmers is named are Colin, Dan, and Ron, three second and third generation farmers. Having grown up on the land they now farm, they are committed to its preservation. Not sure about you but we often forget that farming is still alive and well, perhaps because of the growing divide between rural and urban communities — the very divide that Three Farmers is trying to minimize. But farming is alive and well and is, according to Colin, Dan, and Ron, a way of living, not just an occupation. Through the food they produce, they happily share that way of life with their customers.

How exactly do they do so? Well, first, by bringing excellent, sustainable, and healthy foods to the marketplace. Three Farmers Chickpeas are the perfect example of their commitment to delicious and sustainable food. These roasted chickpeas are packed full of protein and loaded with fiber, making them a snack you can feel good about indulging in. They are also non-GMO, gluten-free, nut and allergen free, and vegan! All of the good things. They come in five flavors: Lightly Salted (a great alternative to a bag of chips), Barbecue, Balsamic & Cracked Pepper, Sea Salt & Lime, and Maple Frosted (tastes like little cookie bites, but without the guilt). In addition to being a delicious snack, or salad topper, as they are made of chickpeas, they are packed full of nutrients like Iron, Copper, Zinc, Thiamin and Manganese, and Omega-3 Polyunsaturates which are good for a healthy heart. Healthy, delicious, and sustainable? Yes, please!

Besides making delicious, farm-fresh food, Three Farmers goes the extra step of connecting customer to the farmer by allowing customers to “Trace Your Food.” Every Three Farmers product comes with a tracking code on the back. Enter that code on their website to learn everything about the food you are snacking on. This includes dates of when it was planted and when it was harvested and information about how they are grown.

Three Farmers believes that “every experience is enhanced when there is a story and truth behind it,” and we couldn’t agree more. Not only does getting the backstory of your snack allow you to crunch away with peace of mind about the sustainability and nutrition of your afternoon indulgence, but also connects you to its creation—how cool is that?!

Enjoy the satisfyingly, airy crunch of the Roasted Chickpeas while learning about the land from which they came next time you need a snack. Save 20% off your first order by using the code “Urthave” upon checkout.
