Better food on your plate
Locally grown food does not travel far from the farm to your plate. That means fresher, tastier, more nutrition food! Local farmers may also offer fruit and vegetable varieties that are more nutritious, unique, and tasty.
A boost to the local economy
When you purchase foods from small farms that grow, process, and distribute their foods within the community, you help your local economy grow!
A cleaner environment
Locally grown and distributed foods require fewer resources to package and transport. When you buy locally, you help to protect the environment.
