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?”
