Why is it important to support local farmers?
Fresher, better tasting food, which is healthier for you!
Food is more nutritious when picked ripe and eaten fresh! Local farmers harvest the food at the prime time and create their selections based on taste rather than transportation.
Help support your community by buying locally!
Buying locally means that you are supporting your local farmers, who in turn, are then able to support the community. It's a never ending cycle.
Buying locally is better for the environment!
Can you imagine how much pollution is created just from packing, refrigerating, and shipping food long distances? Reduce the pollution by shopping locally so that the food doesn't have to cross continents.
Buying locally supports future generations!
Buying locally-grown food enables farmers to preserve farmland and pass down necessary farming skills to future generations so that we have the skills to feed ourselves. This is extremely important given the large-scale food contamination scares and energy costs.
