Why eat local?
• More of your money stays in our community.
• Buying local encourages smaller production and diversification of crops, keeping our topsoil rich and in place.
• Our local produce arrives within 24 hours of being harvested. This is important because produce loses 40% of its nutritional value three days after it is harvested.
• Knowing where our food comes from enriches our mealtime experience.
