The best way to support your local farmer is to buy direct from them. Visit a farmers market, go to a local farmstand, or subscribe to a CSA to get the freshest seasonal fruits, vegetables, dairy, meats and more! Why should you buy directly from farmer?
- Buying direct gets you access to the freshest products of the season.
- When you buy direct, you support family farms and a vibrant working landscape.
- It's affordability and convenient! Did you know that especially when buying certified organic produce at farmers markets, CSAs and farm stands, the cost is often less or is competitively priced with grocery stores?
