There are so many reasons! Below are just a few of the most important:
- We believe that a local food system keeps your money circulating through your community, supporting local growth and resiliency.
- By buying local, you also know exactly where your food comes from, and how it's grown so you can always feel confident about what you eat.
- Supporting local farmers and ranches also helps to boost the industry that you want to support - making it more possible for farmers to continue investing in healthy agricultural practices, and, down the line, making it more affordable for the consumer
- Buying local minimizes your impact on the environment in a very real way. Food that has travelled less miles and been processed less, means less emissions, and less chemicals.
