“I spent money here intentionally. Why?”

I love what one of our customers posted on Facebook:

I spent money here intentionally. Why? 

  • To support our local farmers, small businesses, and or markets to boost our local economy. 
  • If we do not support local producers, then we become totally reliant on multinationals for our food supply. The international food supply chain can be shut down at any time.
  • Did you know that some governments (e.g., Canada and Holland) are seeking to restrict the use of nitrogen-based fertilizers, which would have a significant impact on crop yields and farm financial viability?
  • Local produce is often healthier and fresher and more thought goes into the products.

Supporting local businesses can be inconvenient and sometimes more expensive… but what if it’s worth it?
