Local Foods

Eating locally grown and raised foods increases awareness of where your food comes from, local growing seasons, and the importance of supporting local agriculture. Local foods are fresher and more nutritious than foods that have traveled many miles and days to get to your table.

When you buy direct from local farmers, your dollars stay within your community and strengthens the local economy.  This helps preserve farming as a livelihood and rural landscapes as farmland.
