It is an ancient idea… one that is only recently being resurrected. At one time eating locally produced foods was a way of life for all people. Today most fresh foods are being trucked to US markets from all over theworld. Buying from the local farmer has become difficult. Local Grown was created to help bring local foodsand farm products to shoppers every day, much like the weekend farm markets. Local Grown promoteslocal farms by offering information and education in how to buy directly seasonal farm fresh products. It isour way of helping local farms stay in business.
Locally grown foods taste fresher, last longer and offer valuable nutrients that can be lost due to early harvesting. We encourage you to shop for your foods locally and help keep regional farming alive near you.
