Local Food

via Local Harvest @ http://www.localharvest.org/

“Why Locally Grown? People worldwide are rediscovering the benefits of buying local food. It is fresher than anything in the supermarket and that means it is tastier and more nutritious. It is also good for your local economy–buying directly from family farmers helps them stay in business. Family farmers sell their products directly to the public through various channels.”

My family has been one of those “Family Farmers” you hear about for over 25 years.

Mom and Dad have some seeds ready to plant. They are gearing up for the spring growing season. Pruning the apple trees is the first major project of the season.

The farm will awaken as the Spring begins…
