Support your local farmers


When you buy food at a farmer’s market, local farm, or CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) you directly support your local farmer and local agriculture.  You have the opportunity to meet your farmer and learn about their farming practices.

The food from a farmer’s market (or CSA) is at a higher peak of nutrient level and fresher than any store-bought food.  Most organic farmers are also committed to sustainable agricultural practices.

Learn about the 2012 Farm Bill and how it affects the environment, hunger in America and big business agriculture subsidies.  You can also read a summary of the Farm Bill written by Marion Nestle.

Get involved, and take action today!
