Why Eat Local?

1. Supports Local Farmers

Local farmers are more likely to be concerned for the long-term health of their fields and flocks, insuring that food can be produced on their land for generations to come. 

2. Tastes Better 

Local, seasonal, and sustainable food is more ripe, flavorful, and carefully harvested.

3. Promotes Good Health  

Fresh and minimally processed foods are a delicious answer to many modern health issues, including the obesity epidemic.

4. Builds Local Economy

Dollars spent on local food circulate back through our local economy. If 10% of the regional population shifts 10% of their food dollars to local food, it will result in over $56,000,000 infused into the local economy!

5. Preserves Open Space 

Supporting local food production insures that local farms remain vibrant green spaces.
