Why is a local food system important?

Our Philosophy Viewed: 179

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.
