August 27, 2020 - Local Food is Affordable Food
Why buy your food locally? Freshly picked fruits and vegetables are flavorful, healthy and nutritious, and they will last longer in your fridge! Local, sustainable farms help keep our environment clean. They create less pollution and use fewer harmful chemicals which protects our air, water and soil.
When you support small farms and businesses, you keep money in your local community and support other hard working families. Fresh Farm Atlas has provided a brochure that outlines how to obtain fresh, local food as well as how to choose in-season produce.
