It's about time someone created an online farmers market.

When you woke up and realized the foods at grocery stores were neither as tasty nor as nutritious as local, farm fresh foods, wasn’t it upsetting to discover that farmers markets happened only on summer weekends? 

That’s why we created Gone Local, most advanced farmers market app ever created!

Gone Local App is an online farmers market that connects local farmers with shoppers in their area.

My Story

IMG_6890

Hi! I’m Cleo, the founder of Gone Local.

 

Growing up in Dallas, TX, I spent a lot of my childhood around food and farms. My dad taught me to cook growing up, and I always loved watching him make the perfect roast beast, experiment with different cooking techniques, and age meats. 

 

Throughout my childhood, I would wake up with terrible stomach cramps, and as I grew up, my stomach pains did not improve. In college, I started to do a lot of research on the meat and wheat production in America and decided to undergo a cleanse to see if something I was eating had been causing me such pain since I was a child. I lived and ate gluten free for three years, and vegetarian for two years.

 

After taking up this diet for two years, I began to experience light-headedness at an increasingly alarming rate, and I actually started to faint. Doctors suggested it was my diet, but I wouldn’t hear it. I finally decided, after fainting one too many times, I would eat local meat that did NOT come from a factory farm. After eating meat again, my energy levels increased, and the fainting stopped completely.

 

One year later, while visiting my family in Lebanon for the summer, my aunt convinced me to try a local bread that had been grown the same exact way for thousands of years. Not only did I not feel sick, I felt better than I had in years, and later realized I was missing key nutrients from the wheat crop after being gluten free for so long.

 

I immediately dove into more research on wheat production in the United States. I learned all about Monsanto (now owned by Bayer) and their hand in wheat farming. Realizing it wasn’t the wheat plant in general, it was the way we grow wheat. After further experimentation, I’ve found the best organic wheat products have come from small, local farms, and have shifted my diet to being mostly local and organic foods, especially when it comes to wheat products and meat.

 

I created Gone Local App to make positive changes in the way we produce food in the US, and to help people like myself find the best local foods ever, so that everyone can live as healthily as our planet and lifestyle allow! So, I guess you could say… I’ve Gone Local!
