Earlier this summer, Vital Farms sponsored the 2021 Tour de Farm event to celebrate the accomplishments of Urban Root’s young leaders. We’re so grateful for Vital Farms’ support, and their commitment to raising awareness and funding that will allow us to expand our impact in the years to come.
Vital Farms’ purpose is rooted in a commitment to “conscious capitalism,” which prioritizes the long-term benefits of all stakeholders (farmers and suppliers, customers and consumers, communities and the environment, crew members and stockholders). As an Austin-based company with strong ties to agriculture, Vital Farms has been a great supporter of Urban Roots, helping local youth build their leadership skills through farming and food.
Our partners at Vital Farms share the following message:
“Our mission is to bring ethical food to the table. As a certified B-Corp brand that offers a range of ethically produced pasture-raised products like eggs, butter and ghee, we do everything we can to improve the lives of people, animals, and the planet through food. Whether it’s giving hens year-round outdoor access, supporting over 225 small family farmers in the pasture belt, enabling you to trace your eggs back to the farm, or debunking misleading animal welfare claims, you can always trust Vital Farms to provide high quality standards – from ethical treatment of the environment and animals to being transparent about their practices. Vital Farms products can be found at over 17,000 stores nationwide and on restaurant menus across the country, including Austin favorites like Tacodeli, Easy Tiger and The Peached Tortilla.”
Thank you Vital Farms for your incredible sponsorship of Tour de Farm. With your support, we successfully raised $131,000 at the event for our youth leadership programs!
