CONNECTING YOU TO EXCEPTIONAL, NATURALLY RAISED MEATS SHIPPED DIRECTLY FROM INDEPENDENT FARMERS.
Our story starts with a passion for helping the American farmer.
Keith grew up on small Iowa farm, and watched his parents struggle through the farm crisis of the 80’s, where neighbors, friends and families lost their farms. Fortunately, his family persevered through these challenges. He eventually studied Agricultural Engineering at Iowa State University, started his career with a Fortune 100 company, and with just a few dollars and some ingenuity, became a landowner and operating farmer himself. From working with his father and 14 years of his own personal farming experience, Keith observed how farming has evolved and the challenges farmers are facing to modernize and adapt to market changes.
Aadi started his entrepreneurial drive from a young age. From selling “Silly Bands” in elementary school to running an online marketing agency, drop shipping, and establishing an influential political blog, he has created an impressive business portfolio in a very short time. Aadi learns quickly, operates his businesses at quantum speed and seems unencumbered by the basic human need for sleep.
Gretchen has always been natural at connecting with people – a trait from her father that resulted in grade school teachers scolding her for being too social! After studying business at Iowa State University, she started her career with a Fortune 500 foods brand. Several years and relocations later, Gretchen’s career took a temporary pause to raise her 4 young children. Through her experiences in the workplace and home, Gretchen is quick to recognize the value of customer service as part of a brand promise.
After becoming acquainted through Keith’s daughter, Keith & Aadi recognized an opportunity to leverage Aadi’s business development, e-commerce, and marketing capabilities to solve a problem that Keith had identified… how to get high quality, farm raised products directly to our family’s tables. They began the creation of Source to Table, and set out on a journey to revolutionize the way we get food while serving our American farmers.

A: Orders are shipped directly from our farmers to you, and never through a warehouse. Since all products ship direct from the individual farmer, we cannot order from multiple farmers at the same time.
We have a cost effective, safe and environmentally sound method to get your purchase to you. We utilize FedEx and a courier service, typically arriving one day after shipping from the farm. We send a notification several days prior to shipment so you know when you can expect your delivery
A: We have worked hard to create a simple & affordable shipping rate for overnight and express ground delivery, based on shipping zones and predetermined box sizes. We provide free shipping for bundles to neighboring states, and charge a small surcharge to other states in the continental US.
A: No way! We value the environment and have done our best to ensure you are getting the most product in your containers. Our farmers either use Green Cell insulators (corn starch based) or Kodia Koolers (cotton based) biodegradable insulators that fits into our recyclable boxes. After you receive your package, take the insulator out of the box and compost it, wash it down the drain (Green Cell) or recycle (Kodia Kooler). Please don’t forget to recycle your cardboard box as well!

Orders placed Tuesday and Wednesday will ship the following week. Fairbury Farms orders may take up to 15-20 business days due to the size of the bundles. (This is still weeks to months faster than similar sized orders placed with other farms). We do our best to ship your items sooner if possible
