Wichita’s Top 5 Healthy Organic Restaurants

Are you surprised to learn that Wichita is the largest city in Kansas? It earned its nickname “Cowtown” after being a destination for cattle drives from Texas to Kansas railroads back in the early days. After that, the city became known as the Air Capital of the World with companies like Textron Aviation, Learjet, Airbus, and Boeing/Spirit Aerosystems among those who made it their home in the 1920s and 30s.

This up-and-coming midwestern city features a number of restaurants, many of which meet our high standards of ingredient, preparation, and environmental guidelines.
