Participating in the Farm Fresh Challenge is easier than you may think, as some of the foods you already serve could be Texas products. Distributors for milk and fresh produce commonly source those items locally. If your milk, produce or other items come from Texas, that means you are already meeting some of the Challenge requirements!
