Newport, Kentucky (April 21, 2003) --Our Family Farm announced today the launch of their innovative line of healthy cookies and crackers with all net profits being used to support charitable organizations that protect, nurture and empower children. President Annie Faragher Bennett explains, “My father Ray Faragher, a long time social activist, had a dream about cookies that changed people’s lives. We started baking cookies and crackers that would appeal to children (and to their parents because they contained only healthy ingredients) and soon we will be donating profits to children’s charities such as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and GLAD House.” She adds, “The response was tremendous – friends and family came forward contributing overwhelming amounts of time, talent and energy to launch Our Family Farm.”
Packaged in 6 and 7 oz. boxes, the line does not contain hydrogenated oils, artificial colors and flavors, preservatives or eggs and includes these four delicious offerings:
- Captain’s Catch Baked Cheese Crackers in “underwater shapes”
- Wild Animal Vanilla Cookies in seven “wild animal” shapes
- Brown Bear Vanilla Cookies, vanilla “bear” cookies dipped in chocolate
- Arctic Bear Iced Lemon Cookies, lemon “bear” cookies dipped in vanilla icing
Though Ray Faragher passed in February 2001, his two social worker daughters, Annie and Teri, have committed to moving forward with his vision and company. The company supports charitable organizations that work to improve the lives of children through prevention of child abuse, educational/therapeutic activities and wildlife preservation/environmental education. Says Annie, “Rather than asking for charity and taxpayer dollars, Our Family Farm believes in earning financial support for public purpose missions. By purchasing our products, you are helping to create community wealth.” Our Family Farms’ delicious, natural cookies and crackers are available nationally in select supermarkets, natural food stores, specialty food outlets as well as mail order.
