Good Food, Great Deals: GFA’s Holiday Roundup

By Bob Benenson, FamilyFarmed

We’re biased, but we think the businesses participating in FamilyFarmed’s Good Food Accelerator (GFA) have some of the tastiest products around. We are confident that you would be happy to serve these clean-label products — sharing Good Food values of local, sustainable, humane and fair — or even give them as gifts. So we’re featuring special deals they are offering through the holidays.

The first businesses listed are members of the Accelerator’s current (5th) cohort, followed by GFA alumni with the year in which they graduated from the program. And we even get to start out with breaking news about a business with a brand new online store!
