Individuals who choose to buy local produce purchase fresh-from-the-field products, grown by people they can get to know and trust.
Our environment is protected because products do not need to be shipped hundreds or even thousands of miles, reducing drastically the products’ carbon footprint.
Our economy is strengthened for every resident of Monroe County. Our money stays in our county—that’s good for all of us.
All of this is accomplished while supporting Monroe County farmers who offer highly desirable local products. Each purchase allows them to grow their businesses and preserve the farming heritage so many of us cherish.
