Why I believe in supporting local…
I strive to support local whenever possible. With a local Farmer’s market minutes from my home and acres of farm land surrounding me, I am blessed to have local and fresh produce, meats and cheese at my finger tips. These produces send me on the mot amazing culinary adventure.
Many meals travel hundreds or even thousands of miles to reach your dinner plate. We have the luxury throughout spring, summer, and fall of local producers who offer the freshest, tastiest, and most nutrient-rich selections available.
Supporting local food isn’t simply about the food itself, is about the experience, knowledge, and quality that local farmers’ markets, and family farms can provide.
