“I’m so grateful to live in a world where there are Octobers.”
Spent my morning @funnygirlfarm with April of @be.pure.beauty and her precious daughter seeing where my food is grown and enjoying tranquil time on the farm.
Today more than ever before there’s a real disconnect between us and our food. We fail to consider what we’re eating, where it was made, or how it ended up on our plates. That’s why I chose to become a Funny Girl Farm CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) member earlier this season, in an effort to support local farms and farmers who are enriching my community with nutritious food and sustainable agriculture.
♻️🌎🌳 Here are my reasons to #ShopSmall and #SupportLocal farmers;
1️⃣ You get the freshest tasting and ripest products when sourcing locally. Instead of being picked unripe and “ripening” on the way to the supermarket, travel time is minimized or non-existent so your produce is as fresh and ripe as possible.
2️⃣ I enjoy supporting farmers who believe in using organic and sustainable practices. Many small farms believe in the power of the natural ecosystem, where every creature plays a part in the success of the farm.
3️⃣ When you support local businesses and farms, you’re putting your money directly back into your community and contributing to your neighbors’ livelihood. When it’s fiscally possible for me, I would rather know that my money is putting food on a local family’s table as opposed to going into the pocket of a giant food industry CEO whose net worth is more than I’ll ever see in my lifetime.
