Wodafood: Eat Real Food!

wodafood entreewodafood breakfastI was introduced to Joey by a friend who met him at a CrossFit held in close proximity to the farm. As I gave Joey a tour of the farm, he shared his passion for combining his culinary background and desire to provide healthy, quick, but satisfying meals as an impetus for creating Wodafood. About every two weeks Joey comes to the farm to pick up eggs and produce, and we exchange laughs and swap stories regarding the highs and lows of starting a business, entrepenurship, and of course discuss food. It’s people like Joey, and our relationship that supports us both in reaching our goals, that make me proud and grateful to do what I do each day. Joey Dawkins

Wodafood currently serves Dallas, Frisco, Plano, Garland, Richardson, Rowlett, Forney, Carrolton, Rockwall, Royce City, Allen, McKinney, Mesquite, and Prosper real food, fast, versus the less than healthy options one can find with a drive through option. With a growing public interest in the source of food and its impact on health, its no wonder Wodafood is keeping Joey busy these days. Wodafood seeks to offer seasonal, organic ingredients at prices ranging from $5.95-$14.00 per entree. Meal plans for the week start at $125.

For the Love of Greens

When someone refers to a farmer, the image of a guy donning white skinny jeans and american flag-printed converse shoes isn’t exactly what comes to mind, but when talking about Tom Spicer, aka Spiceman, a former musician from New Orleans and owner at Spiceman’s FM 1410, that is just what you get. What I appreciated in meeting Tom more than him living up to his reputation as an eccentric character is his obvious passion for his craft. He strives to literally grow and increase the availability of the best organic, local produce and rare wild mushrooms and has been doing so for over 25 years. A sort of renaissance man for the slow food movement he educates about this topic along the way, as he did on our first visit.

The store, which sits in front of an 11,000 sq. ft organic garden, is solely identified by a classic Texas Star over the door and although we were welcomed with open arms and treated as if guests at a friend’s home, I couldn’t help but wonder if the lack of signage is an intentional decision to ensure visitors are also intentional. It conjured images of an underground movement, in this case the slow food movement. On this particular day, not only did we meet the man who is said to supply some of Dallas’ top restaurants with produce, predominantly lettuce, but we left with a handful of awesome produce, mushrooms, and solutions to apply at our own farm. A trip well worth it.
