About

Our vision is to pioneer, and create the new "norm" for the food industry. We are creating the first National Network and searchable data-base of GMO free and organic farms, restaurants, health food stores and markets. So whether you are a restaurant looking for fresh produce, farm looking for a market, market looking for a farm, or consumer looking for a place to get some real food, you will find it here! Everyone is supported, everybody wins.

Our philosophy is based on a quote by Buckminster Fuller, "You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete."

Inspired by the strength,steadfastness and longevity of the NRA, our national collaboration will create a similar affect for it's members.  We'll be first composing a national database of qualifying businesses. We  intend the first year listing to be of no charge, as it will take our team quite a bit to put the database together. Should members choose to continue their listing/membership for the second year, they will pay a modest membership fee which will renew annually. The membership fee's will continue to cover costs for ongoing research, development, advertising, public education, and participation in legislation to protect our food supply and our members.

We are picking up where the FDA has failed us.

We are an organization built to support self sustaining, farm-to-table communities and businesses. We promote the folks who are doing the right thing for the Land and Her inhabitants by supplying good, clean, un-messed-with food. We believe in supporting local thriving commerce, free from big business, big Government and outside interference

By joining together we take back control over our food supply. The larger we grow, the more strength we have as a national community who stand strong for what we believe in.

We thank you in your consideration of being part of something which will have a major impact in our food industry. We consider ourselves "evolved entrepreneurs" and we are looking for "evolved investors" who are able to see the bigger pictures.

Thank you.

Risks and challenges

The major challenges that come with this project are:

-Searching each state, locating qualifying businesses and getting the database fully functional within 12 months
-->Our goal it to hire 4 fulltime people to get this done within a 12 month period

-Data base flexibility
--> We've taken the initial steps in getting a database platform built. It's very important that the platform be easily searchable and expandable. We've got our web builder (who specializes in custom data bases) ready and able to rebuild/modify the platform should there be any issue with it's functionality

-Getting our database list to sign-up/subscribe after the first 12 month period
--> So the kicker is once we've collected the initial list of qualifying businesses and have entered them into our searchable database, we need these folks to "subscribe" after the first year. With a paying membership (like the NRA), the site will be able to sustain itself, and fund our educational and political support for a GMO Free planet. Hallelujah !! Our goal is a minimum of an 80% retained membership. To see that we meet this goal we are offering an affordable annual and bi-annual membership rate. Payments can be made monthly or in one lump sum. Similar to Pandora, when a monthly membership/subscription of $4.99 is drawn from my account, I don't bat an eyelash. On top of this, we plan on offering our members perks, similar to the NRA. We will send out a survey to our memberships with a list of possibilities to see what would be most useful to them.
