Welcome to my blog. My name is Stacia, and I hope to educate you about the importance of supporting local farms and to inspire you to buy local, support farmer stands and take an active role in understanding the origin of your food. Buying from local farmers is important to the economy in your community, supports a healthy environment by cutting down on problems caused by transportation and also allows you to have the freshest food available. Many people are surprised to learn how many benefits there are to buying local and supporting farms. You might be surprised as well!
