What can local food do for you?
Local Food = Local Jobs. When you buy local, you’re supporting the creation of truly local jobs and supporting a closed-circuit local economy. When you support a local farmer, you are supporting your neighbor instead of a large corporation.
Healthier with Fewer Chemicals. Usually, local operations are smaller than large corporate farms and produce goods with a much lower chemical input rate. This means fewer pesticides, herbicides, and other conventional chemicals that could suppress your health and turn your salad into a toxic soup.
Food safety. Our farmers and producers take food safety very seriously. A shorter trip between the source of your food and your kitchen makes for a much safer, transparent food chain.
