Local Foods Guide
Locally grown food can be fruits and vegetables, dairy products and eggs, locally raised meats, and even honey. Local farmers give you access to fresher and healthier produce. Produce is seasonal and picked when ripe and meat is often hormone and preservative-free. Buying local keeps your money in your community. This guide lists where you can purchase local foods.
