Episode 9: Serving organic and locally sourced ingredients on a food truck with Jessica Hogan

Episode Summary

In this episode of Charlottesville Connected, Amy Cochran speaks with Jessica Hogan of Farmacy Food Truck. Originally starting as a superfood smoothie subscription delivery service, Farmacy now is a Food Truck that aims to give people peace of mind and a place that stands for humanely raised animals and by-products without hormones and antibiotics.

The Food Truck makes tacos, burritos, quesadillas and still serves some of the smoothies originally created before it switched to a different business model. The company aims to source food from local establishments as much as possible.
