Kelli and Ron Abdon are old hands at growing food and serving it up--she’s the third generation to live on her family’s farm outside Bloomington, and he’s cooked for restaurants for about 20 years.
When the pandemic hit, Kelli noticed how strong the local food system remained, despite the challenges the rest of the country faced in reliably sourcing good, healthy food. The pair decided to make use of their skillset and connections to local farmers to start a small business that provides pre-cooked, plant-forward meals in single portions that are ready to reheat at a customer’s convenience. Lost Farm was born.
I sat down with Kelli and Ron in early Spring 2023 to hear more about the business. Listen to the story on this episode of Earth Eats.
