Summer is almost here and soon there will be lots of opportunities to enjoy fresh local produce.
Eating locally makes sense!
Environmentally, eating locally is smart because it reduces the amount of “food miles” traveled, this reduces the use of petroleum and reduces emissions created from driving your food across the country.
You’re supporting local farmers, and putting money back into our local economies.
Fresh food tastes better!
