Local farms across the nation are struggling to survive due to the influx of large corporate farms. One great way to make both a positive environmental impact and support the local community is to buy fresh, local foods.
Buying local foods not only allows you to know where your food comes from, it affords you the opportunity to talk to the people who are growing your food. Buying organic, local foods also helps to ensure that you are eating fresher foods that have not been shipped halfway across the world, leading to better tasting, quality meals. Buying local also reduces fuel emissions needed to transport foods.
Why should you buy local foods?
