                  WHY BUY LOCAL FOOD?
Local food is fresher and tastes better
than food shipped long distances. Local
farmers can offer produce grown for taste
and ripe with freshness, rather than for
shipping and long shelf life.

With eachg local food purchase, more of
Your money goes directly to the farmer
and that money circulates throughout the community.

Knowing where your food comes from
and how it is grown enables you to
                  farmers who avoid
choose food from Serving: All of Southwest Iowa
