COVID-19 & Local Food
More than ever, we need our local farmers.
Local food is grown and harvested within days of reaching your plate. With a shorter supply chain, the customer has greater control and transparency on the food safety practices used to harvest, wash, and ship the product. You can build a relationship with the grower and feel safe eating food grown close to home.
Did you know?
According to the FDA and USDA, there is no evidence of food or food packaging being associated with transmission of COVID-19.More Resources
