Frankferd Farms Foods has been providing the region with organic, natural, and bulk foods for over 35 years. In 1978, Frankferd Farms Milling was born along with the owners’ (Betty and T.Lyle Ferderber) first child. They were some of the first organic farmers in the area, receiving just as much praise as they did raised eyebrows. After seven years of growing and milling grains on their 81-acre organic farm, Betty and T.Lyle welcomed their second child into the world and expanded to become a food distributorship in 1985. Since then, the food business outgrew its space on the family farm and moved to a much larger warehouse a few miles away. Frankferd is the only company of its kind in the region and serves over 3000 customers in 7 states. Since the business essentially grew out of an organic farm, its ethics are rooted in stewardship to the land. If we are awarded, we plan on using the funds to purchase high efficiency lighting for our 9500 square foot warehouse.
Here are a few of our practices that reduce our impact on the earth and the environment:
