Last week, food tech startup Real Time Farms, in partnership with FixFood’s ”Meat Without Drugs“ campaign, launched the FixAntibiotics Food Finder. The first of its kind map enables consumers to find retail locations, farmers markets, farms and restaurants selling meat from animals raised without antibiotics.
Their current farm data has been crowdsourced over the past 2.5 years from Real Time Farms users and from their Food Warrior interns, who personally interview individual farmers. Their farmers market data is also crowdsourced, but is cross-checked against the USDA’s farmers market data. Finally, their retailer information comes directly from Whole Foods, Applegate and Organic Prairie.
