Good morning everybody...
A cold snowy February morning seems like a strange time to be thinking about local food, but it's not a minute too soon. It's important that we all make an effort to educate ourselves about the reasons to buy local--and then resolve to buy what's available locally--even in winter--before we head for the supermarket. Our farmers survive only because they have customers.
Please take time to look at all the info on this website and submit comments after articles that interest you.
Then sign up for our newsletter. Those who subscribe will receive updates on timely issues such as state and federal actions affecting local food, local food events, field trips, and much more. We do not sell, give, trade, or otherwise make available your information to anybody except the three people who manage the site.
This is an interactive website. Your comments, information, suggestions, corrections, and ideas will make it one that locavores will want to visit every day.
Thanks for your support. See you at the winter farmers market.
