How Open Source Ag Stars are Imagined

One Star: The grow-to-donate social community and events are considered “very good in their category” having a quality menu and grows, shares, prepares, and distributes food and cuisine to a consistently high standard.
Two Stars: Open Source Ag has excellent cuisine, grown and distributed in a unique and eco-friendly way, and has something exceptional to offer – it’s “worth a detour” to visit while traveling.
Three Stars: Okay, this is a stretch. Open Source Ag collaborates and grows exceptional, healthy, and organic and offers classes, events, and community; thus “worth a special journey” just to visit. Rather than being a stop on the way to a destination, this farm is the destination. This community serves distinct dishes and activities that are executed to perfection.
