Why buy local and sustainable? There are several reason, but lets highlight a few...
- Sustainable, organic agriculture produces food that does not harm the environment.
- Promotes animal welfare, public health, and personal health.
- Saves family farms, supports and protects rural communities.
- Empowers and protects farm workers.
- Food tastes better!
We would like to highlight a couple of the farmers and a local organic business working hard to promote local, organic, and the growth of our local food movement.
