* There are several farms that deliver fresh produce to your home or specific pickup location:
Local Harvest Mulitple local locations for pickup. Pick and choose from their menu. Every Saturday morning they post a harvest menu online. Members have until 10 am Tuesday to place an order. They sort, bundle & deliver the produce, and you pick up the goods at a convenient neighborhood host site on Wednesday. LocalHarvest connects people looking for good food with the farmers who produce it. Buying local is about enjoying real food, grown yourself or purchased from people you trust. It’s about developing strong local economies and producing food on a human scale. It’s about eating seasonally, practicing the art of cooking, and sitting down to enjoy meals together. It requires ample local and regional producers, processors, and distributors. As they see it, the goal of the local food movement is to create thriving community-based food systems that will make high-quality local food available to everyone.
Sally’s Gluten Free Bakery on Kimball Bridge Rd is one stop.
