In honor of earth week, check out what good stuff your local farmer has to offer! It's worth the stop!
Fresher, local food. It hasn't been traveling for miles and miles, and hasn't been sitting on shelves for weeks and weeks. As a result, the local food should have more vitamins (less time passed, less travel time=less vitamins lost)
Tastier food. Why? For same reasons mentioned above.
Less pesticides. Hopefully, your farm does not use harmful pesticides- if unsure, just ask! Also, look for the organic labels.
Less Gas/Fuel. What does this mean? With less travel time, less fuel and gas are used. This is better for our environment.
And the last reason,
Because it's Fun! It feels better to support people working hard in our local community! It's much more personal!
