DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--North Texas residents are now enjoying a new, more convenient way to experience high-quality, locally produced foods straight from their neighbors. In an effort to increase awareness and availability of healthy, sustainable products grown throughout North Texas, such as longhorn beef from local co-op Chisholm Trail Longhorn Beef, Texas Daily Harvest now offers delivery of products to locations and communities across North Texas through an online outlet.
Partnerships with farms in and around Dallas have played a key role in the development of a system that not only supports local economy and sustainable agriculture, but also fosters a healthy sense of community in neighborhoods around the Metroplex. The system reflects the quality and conventions found in the traditional farmers market not previously available to many in the area, and best of all, it’s accessible to anyone with Internet access.
“The farmers market is a tradition that we really hate to see fading across Texas and in urban areas,” said Mike Crawford, Chisholm Trail Longhorn Beef partner. “By shopping together and experiencing the fresh food options produced by their own community, Dallas residents will be able to develop a deeper connection with the area as well as with each other.”
By signing up on Texas Daily Harvest’s website <www.texasdailyharvest.com>, residents can form new groups or join existing groups to compile orders from the company’s digital catalog. The catalog is updated regularly to reflect new and seasonal products, all sustainable and locally grown on the Texas Daily Harvest farm as well as other ranches and farms around the area. Once a group has been established, its members can then specify a common delivery location for weekly drop-offs.
“We’re not only excited about the opportunity to provide delivery options of our products directly to Dallas residents,” said Crawford, a Dallas resident himself, “but we are also very glad to be a part of a program that will provide deeper community enrichment as well as help support the local agricultural economy.”
Chisholm Trail longhorn beef is leaner than cuts of chicken, turkey, lamb, pork and venison, and contains less calories, fat and cholesterol per serving than these options. In addition, Chisholm Trail longhorns are raised on family-owned ranches across Texas and are not grain-fed like most cattle. This hormone-free, stress-free environment makes for healthier meat options and responsible, sustainable agricultural practices.
Texas Daily Harvest updates its offerings regularly to reflect availability of seasonal and specialty products. Chisholm Trail Longhorn Beef can be found year-round through Texas Daily Harvest or at restaurants and retail locations across the Metroplex.
