PRODUCTS + INGREDIENTS
Please use the store locator on our website (click on Where to Buy) to see if our products are available near you — you can even filter by specific product(s). If your favorite retailer does not carry them, please ask them to. You can take this form to your store manager. You can also order our products directly from our website.
The allergen content of our products depends on product type. FIELD + FARMER dressings, dips, and juices do not contain milk, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, or wheat. All FIELD + FARMER dressings, dips, and juices are free of soy and sesame EXCEPT the Asian Sesame dressing.
All FIELD + FARMER fresh snack bars contain coconut and almond butter, EXCEPT the Peanut Butter + Jelly and Peanut Butter Cookie bars, which are made with coconut and peanut butter.
All of our products are gluten-free, though one of our juices contains wheatgrass. It tests as gluten-free, but we disclose it because some people who are sensitive to gluten also avoid wheatgrass.
FIELD + FARMER dressings, dips, and juices are processed in a facility that handles milk, eggs, tree nuts (almonds, cashews, pine nuts, coconut), peanuts, wheat, and soy.
FIELD + FARMER fresh snack bars are processed in a facility that handles peanuts, almonds, cashews, and coconut.
The equipment is rigorously cleaned between product runs.
No. All of our products are free from palm oil and palm-oil derivatives.
All of our products are 100% plant-based, except the Honey Mustard dressing, which contains honey; however we are in the process of redeveloping this recipe to replace the honey and will update the labels at that time. We expect the new vegan Hon’y Mustard to be on shelf before the end of summer (but be sure to check the label to make sure your store is carrying the new recipe!).
Our juices are kosher; our dressings, dips, and bars are not.
High-pressure processing allows the gentle preservation of food without additives or heat. It is a cold pasteurization technique where products, sealed in their final package, are placed in a vessel that is filled with highly pressurized water. Since high pressure eliminates many food-damaging organisms and can deactivate microorganisms, decay processes are significantly slowed or even stopped. Flavors and vitamins, however, are not affected by pressure and thus remain intact. In this way, HPP maintains the flavor and nutritional profile in foods because of the absence of heat treatment, and products retain their original freshness throughout their shelf life. Both our juices and dips are preserved with HPP.
Citric acid, one of the most common food additives in the world, is used to boost acidity, enhance flavor, and preserve ingredients. Citric acid is found naturally in citrus fruits, especially lemons and limes, and has a tart taste. Like 99% of the world’s citric acid, the citric acid that we use is made via microbial fermentation — i.e, sugar or molasses is added to a fungus and allowed to ferment to achieve the ideal pH balance. The resulting citric acid is then ready for use in food products such as ours. This type of manufactured citric acid is recognized as safe by the FDA and is considered a clean ingredient by retailers such as Whole Foods.
We use Bob’s Red Mill nutritional yeast, which is fortified with synthetic Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, and folic acid.
FIELD + FARMER bars are a plant-based food bar made with 100% real (not dehydrated) veggies and fruit as the first ingredient. FIELD + FARMER bars are a balanced real-food bar that contains nothing but plants. No chemicals, no preservatives. So you won’t find them on the crowded energy bar shelf. They’re a fresh food, so you will find FIELD + FARMER bars in the refrigerated section of your favorite grocery store. If you don’t see us, ask for us – bring in this form to your store manager!
FIELD + FARMER bars are NOT a protein bar. Typically, protein bars have very high amounts of protein, beyond what is needed (the average American gets 50-75% more protein than needed!). In many cases, this high level of protein is achieved by adding chemicals. Our bars have a balanced amount of protein since the protein comes naturally from plants. FIELD + FARMER bars are a real-food bar featuring fresh produce — fresh veggies and fruit — as the first ingredient.
No, FIELD + FARMER bars are cooked to bring out the flavor, enhance the phytonutrients, and eliminate any harmful bacteria that can occur in raw foods.
We use plant-based coconut sugar in FIELD + FARMER bars, which is low on the glycemic index (35). If you have diabetes, we always recommend consulting your doctor before eating.
No. FIELD + FARMER bars do NOT contain added oils or fats.
USE + STORAGE
Because we don’t use chemicals or preservatives, our dressings, dips, and juices must be refrigerated at all times, before and after opening. The bars can be unrefrigerated for up to three days as long as they are in the sealed wrapper at room temperature (make sure the packaging does not have any tears or holes), but we recommend keeping them in the refrigerator for the best quality. Some people prefer to freeze them and let them defrost for 15-20 minutes or enjoy them as frozen treats!
Unfortunately, no. Per FDA guidelines, because we don’t use any chemical preservatives or stabilizers, all of our products cannot be unrefrigerated (above 45 degrees Fahrenheit) for more than four hours. They must be refrigerated both before and after opening. The bars can be left unrefrigerated for up to three days.
All of our products are perishable and must be refrigerated at all times, both before and after opening. The shelf life for dressing is approximately seven months; for dips, it is approximately four months; and for juice, it is approximately three months, but always adhere to the use-by date on the container. The “best by” date on the bars is the refrigeration date; you can freeze them up to 6 months past that date.
We advise that you finish our products within 5-7 days of opening.
For the best quality and maximum freshness, we do not recommend freezing our dressings, dips, or juices. However, if you must freeze the dressing, make sure to place it in a freezer-safe container as the bottles are not freezer safe and can burst if frozen. After thawing, the dressing will not maintain its form, but you can use an immersion blender to reconstitute it (this is not a permanent solution, though; the dressing will keep separating).
It is easier to freeze the dips, though you may still see some separation after thawing (which is natural as we don’t use chemical stabilizers), so make sure to stir well after thawing.
If you want to freeze the juice, make sure there is enough space in the bottle to accommodate expansion (or transfer to a larger freezer-safe container). As always, we advise that you finish our products (dressings, dips, and juices) within 5-7 days of opening.
You can easily freeze the bars.
Our dressings come in glass, so are recyclable anywhere glass is recycled. Our juice bottles are recycle code #1 (PET or PETE), and our dips containers are recycle code #5. PETE plastic is safe for food and drinks, is intended for single use, and is easily recycled. After PETE plastic, plastic #5 or PP plastic is the second-most common plastic used for food products. It can be safely reused and is also recyclable (check your municipality’s guidelines to know which plastic codes they accept).
The minimum order size is $32. We currently ship to 31 states (AL, AR, CT, DC, DE, GA, IA, IL, IN, KY, KS, LA, MD, MI, MO, MN, MS, NC, NE, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, WI, and WV) and cannot ship to PO boxes due to carrier restrictions. Shipping is free for orders over $60 and $9.99 for orders under $60 (please see our Shipping & Return Policy for more information).
Because our food is refrigerated, we ship orders only Monday through Wednesday to maintain freshness and product safety (UPS and FedEx will not guarantee Saturday or Sunday delivery, meaning your order could be stuck in a warehouse over the weekend and would no longer be safe to eat upon its ultimate delivery were we to ship after Wednesday). While we do try to ship all orders within 1-2 days within these parameters, this does mean if you place an order on Wednesday, it will not ship until the following Monday or Tuesday. You will receive a tracking number as soon as your order has been entered into the shipping software.
If you receive items that are damaged in shipping, please email us within three days of receiving the product at email@example.com, and we’ll try to solve the problem. Ultimately, it may be the responsibility of the shipping carrier, but we will do our best to fix the issue and get new products to you as soon as possible.
Because we don’t use chemical preservatives or stabilizers, our products must be cold-shipped, which is shockingly expensive. First, we have to ensure that orders arrive within two days, which is quite costly. While our customers pay for shipping below $60, that is actually misleading because they are not paying the entire shipping fee; we are still subsidizing the amount they pay by another 60% on average. So for example, if a customer pays $9.99 for shipping, we actually pay at least another $15 in shipping on top of that for that one order. Additionally, there is another minimum of $10-15 for packing materials (boxes, ice packs, etc.) — again, for every order (and this doesn’t include labor).
So it’s easy to see why we lose money on online commerce. Still, we offer the option to try to meet the demand for our customers who don’t live close to a retailer that offers our products. Customers wanted the online option, even at a higher cost to them, so we are doing our best to meet that demand, even though it comes at a financial loss for our small company.
We now ship to only 31 states in the US. Unfortunately, we had to reduce our shipping range because we were losing an unsustainable amount of money on online shipping costs.
While our customers pay for shipping below a certain dollar amount, that is actually misleading because they are not paying the entire shipping fee; we subsidize on average 60% of our customers’ shipping costs.
This resulted in orders to distant destinations like California costing an enormous amount to ship. Just one example: a California customer was upset that she had to pay $19.99 for shipping, but we had to pay an extra $98.10 in shipping costs for just that one order! Plus the shipping supplies of approximately $10-15 per order (not counting labor). Continuing this practice could have put our small company out of business. So until we have more growth, we can ship to only the following regions for the fees indicated. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
