"...when you see that veggie stand on the side of the road, stop and buy something. Buy everything you can afford to locally.

Your dollar will have ...a greater impact when you buy anything directly from a local producer than switching to an organic item at a chain supermarket. Truly.

More and more farmers are finally starting to see the writing on the wall, and they’re trying to save themselves. They are returning to growing food instead of commodities, and more importantly they are marketing that food directly to customers, instead of selling it for pennies on the dollar to multinational packing and processing corporations.

3 hours remain to help save some goodies from the cold night. We will do our best to cover produce in and at the Veggie Barn but without a source of heat their survival from freezing is iffy. If you plan on stocking up on carrots, beets, kale, onions, squash, brussel sprouts, cabbage, pie pumpkins, etc, I HIGHLY recommend coming before we close at 6!
