The American Farmer is disappearing from our nation’s landscape. There are fewer than one million Americans now claiming farming as their primary occupation. If you are lucky enough to live near a farm, support them by purchasing their delicious farm grown produce. Support them in any way that you can. I am fortunate to live within walking distance of a beautiful farm in operation for seven generations; Bartlett’s Ocean View Farm. Their fields are pure inspiration. Carrots, zucchini, peppers, corn, tomatoes, cabbage, squash, pumpkins, lettuces, herbs, sugar snap peas, shell peas, cucumbers, spinach, swiss chard, beets, melons. And flowers, rows of glorious flowers. When you buy locally you: Eat healthier more nutrient rich food. Help farm families to stay on the farm doing the work they love. Preserve open space. Say no to genetically modified food. Prevent air pollution. Support a clean environment that benefits wildlife. Buying locally has countless benefits, visit your local farm or farm stand today.
