About Frontera Farmer Foundation
Established in 2003 to attract support for small Midwestern farms, the Frontera
Farmer Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, is committed
to promoting small, sustainable farms serving the Chicago area by
providing them with capital development grants. The Foundation envisions
a year-round interchange between sustainable farmers and consumers,
including farmers' market patrons and chefs, in which seasonal local
agriculture provides the foundation for sustainable regional cuisine.
Rick and Deann Bayless, founders of Frontera
Grill and Topolobampo,
along with the restaurants' staff, created the Foundation out of their
concern for struggling farmers and the importance of local produce to
the vitality of Chicago's culinary culture. Small local farms promote
biodiversity by planting a wide range of produce, are more likely to
operate using organic practices, and add immeasurably to the fabric of
their communities. By their artisanal approach to agriculture, these
farmers insure the highest quality of food.
