Buy Fresh, Buy Local
The growing national demand for locally produced and safe food is easy to understand. Fruits, vegetables, and animal products produced near our homes are not only better tasting and more nutritious but they offer citizens the opportunity to learn how they were grown and by whom.
Where does your food come from? Food travels on average 1,300 miles from farm to table. For additional information about the benefits of buying local food, visit the FoodRoutes Network website.
“The best organic food is what’s grown closest to you. Use our website to find farmers’ markets, family farms, and other sources of sustainable grown food in your area, where you can buy produce, grass-fed meats, and many other goodies.” Read more at Local Harvest!
