Why Eat Local?

Local food is about the future. By supporting local Placer County farmers today, you can help ensure that there will be farms in your community tomorrow, and that future generations will have access to nourishing, flavorful, and abundant food.

Local food builds community.
When you buy direct from the farmer, you are re-establishing a time-honored connection. When you visit local farms & ranches, you gain insight into the seasons, the weather, and the miracle of raising food. In many cases, it gives you access to a farm where your children and grandchildren can go to learn about nature and agriculture.
