Recently, Clif Bar & Company launched a short video series, Farmers Speak, to give voices to the story of organic food and to be a catalyst for a more organic future. This inaugural video, below, tells the story of organic through the eyes of Brian Krumm, a Canadian oats farmer who switched from conventional to organic farming – and has never looked back.
Clif Bar says: “How we craft our food matters. It impacts the health of people and the health of our natural resources like soil and water. At Clif Bar, we strive to be a catalyst for change in creating a healthy food system. For us, that effort begins with organic. That’s why we’ve launched our new series, Farmers Speak, which gives voice to the stories of organic ingredients and the farmers who grow them.”
