WITHOUT LOCAL FARMERS, SLOW FOOD DOESN'T EXIST.
Supporting local farms has a direct impact on our community
Choosing to purchase your produce from local farmers has a huge impact on our community. It keeps money in our local economy, it reduces environmental impact and your fruits and veggies arrive fresher and with more nutrients than those that travel from other states - or countries!
