WHY BUY LOCAL AND ORGANIC?

Fresher Food for Your Family

Food at most grocery stores has traveled an average of 1,200 miles. Buying from local producers means you are getting much fresher produce (some picked the same day!) and it helps reduce the pollution and costs associated with transporting food. Buying local is one powerful step you can take to address the impacts of climate change!

Less Chemicals for You and the Environment

Organic food doesn’t contain synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, antibiotics or growth hormones, genetically engineered organisms, chemical additives or any other inputs that raise human health and environmental concerns. No one needs to eat that stuff!

Supports Your Local Economy

One study found that a dollar spent buying directly from a farmer has about twice the impact on the local economy as spending a dollar on food that goes through a middleman. More money in your community helps your local economy to become more efficient and helps other local business thrive!
