Supporting the local food system benefits our personal health and the health of our family, community, environment and local economy.
- Local food in season is fresh and you can usually taste the difference! Local also means that less fuel has been used to transport the products to market. Click here to see what is in season.
- If you are concerned about herbicides and pesticides used to grow your food then look for organic produce or try growing your own fruits and vegetables. Check out The organic food guide
