Now, Taylor says, ELEN is adding a new supplier every month, and delivers to fifty restaurants, grocers, and other food retailers a week. For example, some of the chicken and pork raised and processed at Gunthorp Farms in LaGrange, Indiana, gets cooked up at Grange and eve restaurants. Free-range eggs from Sunrise Poultry in Homer, Michigan, are sold at Arbor Farms, Zingerman's Roadhouse, and Plum Market.

Taylor estimates that sales have increased around 70 percent in the last year--enough that he's had to buy a second refrigerated delivery truck.    (end of article)
