Well? Aren’t we all a little picky? Enter Local Harvest, a health-focused dot-com comany that does all the leg work when it comes to finding good-for-you-food…right in your back yard. Local Harvest makes it a little more convenient for us ‘picky’ types, with a tool that allows you to find farmers markets, family owned farms, and other sustainably grown food OR opt to have the local goodies delivered right to your doorstep.
I am all about the support of ‘going local’. My case?
- A carrot typically has to travel 1,838 miles to reach your dinner table. Think about how you feel after a long flight. Enough said.
- The closer the goods are to you, the quicker they make it to your mouth, and the fresher they are when they get there.
- When you buy local you are strengthening the economic base of your own community. If you love where you live why not give back?
So go ahead… get picky (or stay picky). You’re just a click away to noshing on fabulous fresh food from a farm near you. In fact, give it a try – find what’s for dinner right now: Local Harvest.
