Our Family Farm Introduces Field Friends, The Healthy Cracker That Is Good and Does Good!

Newport, Kentucky (October 20, 2003) Our Family Farm, known for “Baking the World a Better Place”, introduces Field Friends Baked Wheat Crackers, their new whole-wheat cracker that offers kids a healthy, delicious snack alternative. Packaged in a convenient Cracker CargoÔ (nine 1 oz. bags per tray), the crackers are made with organic whole-wheat flour and do not contain hydrogenated oils, trans fats or artificial preservatives, flavors and colors. The fun farm animal shapes are baked not fried! According to Annie Bennett, President, “As a mother and grandmother, I know how important it is to have “grab and go” snacks for travel, school lunches and snacking. We created these crackers not only for nutritious reasons and for convenience but to support our mission with children’s charities.” Our Family Farm donates its profits to organizations that help improve the lives of children through prevention of child abuse, educational activities and wildlife/environmental protection.

In addition to snack packs, Field Friends Baked Wheat Crackers are also sold in 6 oz. boxes. The attractive, colorful packaging is a winner with kids. “Even though we get rave reviews from the kids, we get a lot of feedback from adults too,” adds Annie. “They’re great for soups, salads and TV-time snacking.” A 1 oz. bag retails for $.54, the cargo tray is $4.99 and the 6 oz. box is $2.69. Their original cracker, Captain’s Catch Baked Cheese Crackers, is now available in the convenient Cracker CargoÔ also and is made with certified organic wheat flour.

Our Family Farm was founded by Ray Faragher, a long time social activist, and his two social worker daughters, Annie and Teri. Other family members, sharing the same vision, assist them day-to-day in the business. The company makes a line of delicious, natural, kosher-certified cookies and crackers for children and their families. Our Family Farm products are available nationally in select supermarkets, natural food stores, specialty food outlets as well as mail order. For more information, please log on to
