Why Eat Locally?

 

Why Go Local? The average grocery store tomato has traveled for several days and over 1,500 miles to go from field to shelf. Much of the nutrient content and flavor of the mass produced vegetables available at our supermarkets is lost in transit; not to mention the inefficiency and insecurity of a food system based on long distance travel and dependent on oil.

We believe that fresh, local produce raised right in our home community is the best alternative to mass produced and often tasteless supermarket produce. Our produce, picked at the peak of ripeness, is never harvested more than two days before it is in your share. This ensures the highest nutritional content possible.

By buying local our members are making a commitment to their community. Your food dollars are spent with a local farmer who in turn relies on the other businesses in our community. By supporting local farmers, our members are also supporting other local businesses. Buying locally keeps our community a vibrant and healthy place to live.

 

Open Space Preservation: Members who join the farm are doing their part to preserve open space in the community. The only way we can continue to enjoy the pastoral beauty of the rural areas in our community is by keeping farmers on the land. By joining a CSA members are helping to preserve farming and open space by providing farmers with a guaranteed source of income and support. Ultimately, economic viability is the most vital aspect of having local, sustainable farms in our community.
