Why buy local?
Local food is fresher, more nutritious and tastes better than food shipped long distances from other countries and provinces.
By buying local fruits, vegetables, meats and other products from our Kawartha Choice FarmFresh farmers, at our local Farmers’ Market or at your favourite local eatery you are supporting our local agriculture and the farm families who grow the food. This in turn helps to preserve our local farmland, helps the environment by reducing food miles and expands the local food market. Not to mention, you get to build relationships with the farmers based on understanding and trust and get to experience agriculture up close.
Buying local means you have access to the freshest food available… and it just tastes better!
