For Customers: Why Buy Local?
 Knowing your local farmer has become a valued aspect of connecting with food, and with it brings relationship, accountability, and clear knowledge of how food is raised and who is raising it. Buying local supports farmers who grow for taste, diversity, and healthfulness rather than durability, transportation and uniformity.   

BY SUPPORTING YOUR LOCAL FARMER, YOU ARE ALSO:

  • Promoting the local economy
  • Supporting your friends and neighbors
  • Reducing our use of fossil fuel                  
  • Preserving farmland and open space 
  • Preserving agricultural jobs
  • Advocating a local, sustainable food system 

Local Food Attributes:

  • higher quality
  • better flavor
  • longer shelf life
  • higher nutritional value
  • low level of pesticide exposure ‚Äč
