The average item of food travels 2000 miles before it reaches the table. Our current system of food production tends to rely heavily on mass transport, contributing greatly to the problems of pollution and climate change. Buying food that is grown or produced locally will alleviate this need for transportation while, at the same time, supporting local farms, protecting farmland from development, and contributing to the local economy. If nothing else, food that is produced locally will be fresher than food that has been sitting on a truck. Fresher food tastes better and is healthier for you.
In this section you will find sources of locally grown and produced food as well as some sources of organic and ecologically produced food. Support your environment, your community, and your tastebuds… buy local food today.
