About Fair Grounds Organic Cafe & Roastery - Mississauga
Fair Grounds Organic Café & Roastery is a small coffee shop with a lot of heart. Located in the Lake Shore West community of Long Branch. Fair Grounds is dedicated to providing individuals with fresh, Certified Fair Trade and organic products. By choosing Fair Trade products we and our customers are making a choice to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability.
Fair Grounds, unlike most coffee shops, did not start as a business plan. Rather, it started as a passion for supporting communities abroad in their attempt to sell quality products at a fair price. The owner, Jeffrey Stinson, began doing research on coffee for another business, when he realized that not only is coffee the most sprayed crop next to cotton, but that farmers are losing money in its production and being further pushed into poverty. Upon gaining this knowledge, he thought it was an important cause to support, and roasting coffee seemed like an interesting hobby. He began roasting coffee with a friend in a warehouse, selling the beans at local farmers markets. The passion that Jeffrey developed for this cause has not wavered, however his hobby has grown into a flourishing coffee shop.
MAKING A CHOICE FOR CHANGE
Fair Grounds is dedicated to providing individuals with fresh, Certified Fair Trade and certified organic products. What does this mean? By choosing fair trade products, we are making a choice to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability. At Fair Grounds, all of our products are organic – meaning that are grown without any synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Healthier soil and waters offered to growing produce, in turn means healthier consumers. So, not only do we offer an alternative ethical choice to consumers, with products that aid in developing communities abroad, we also provide a wide range of products that are fresh and organic, benefiting our own community. Together we are making a choice for change.
