We believe in local farming and we believe that supporting growers in our communities is the best way to ensure a future for food. Cultivating Change, the Greener Fields Together local farm grant program aims to fund projects or pursuits that will help local farmers do what they're best at: farming. Grant amounts from $3,000-$10,000 will be funded on an annual basis to qualifying growers through an online voting platform and industry review panel.

This week Royal received another outstanding high score on its HACCP/GAP food safety audit performed by Primus GFS, one of the strictest third-party audits in the industry.
Primus GFS performs annual audits through their Auditing Operations division and considers our scores over the past three years to be superior. The scope of the audit includes storage and distribution operations and supporting processes such as repacking and splitting, incoming product and stored product inspections, product coding and tracking, temperature controls—all key elements of the standards defined by Good Agriculture Practices (GAP) and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP).
Royal strives to meet high standards and practices, not only in matters of food safety, but in all areas of our business—from the products we pass on to our customers, to our level of customer service. Food safety auditing is one way in which we put our customers first. Thank you for being our customers, and for helping us to make excellence a possibility!
We wish to publicly thank all those who recently joined Royal Food Service in helping two of our local farms, Jaemor Farms and StoneCreek Hydroponics, who applied to win a grant worth up to $10,000 to improve their farming operations by obtaining standards certifications or making improvements to infrastructure, capacity building, or marketing.
Thanks to your support through your daily voting, we're happy to report that Jaemor Farms was awarded a total of $13,000 and Stone Creek Hydroponics was awarded $3,000! The additonal $3,000 to Jaemor was for their finish in the popular vote! Both farms were among the top 10 chosen by an industry review panel!
The contest, Cultivating Change Grant Program, was sponsored by PRO*ACT's Greener Fields Together. Jaemor Farms made it to the top 10 and StoneCreek Hydroponics came in real close to the top ten as well. It could have not happened without your help. We thank you once again for your support!
