Farms We fund
10% of TATER TAT sales go directly to sustainable farms and healthy food organizations.
Our aim at Tater Tats is to encourage healthy, seasonal eating. We love farmers, and we want to create positive change in our food systems, so each year we give back 10% of total sales to farmers who are changing the world from the ground up. This means, for every four tattoos you buy, we give 50 cents to a farm who is growing sustainable, earth friendly, delicious food.
Northern Michigan farmers Carissa and Nate are transitioning from farming two acres to sixty acres and are excited about feeding their community even more beautiful food, raised sustainably and transparently. They run a Farm Credit CSA and sell their mixed vegetables and pastured pork at markets.
