With bellies full from Thanksgiving treats, we welcome in December and the holiday spirit! While our list will continue to shrink this time of year, we still have lots of options to keep you eating locally all month long.
This week we saw our final delivery of organic bagged carrots from Root 5 Farm and our first delivery of organic bulk carrots from Killdeer Farm (available only in Hanover), with their organic bagged carrots on the horizon. We’ve also had Dunk’s Mushrooms return to shelves after a brief hiatus, just in time for your holiday gatherings.
And if you need to make a dessert, grab some local apples from Patch Orchards and some organic ginger from Luna Bleu Farm for an amazing Apple Ginger Crisp
Long before "local" was incorporated into the positioning statement of every giant discount megastore, it was a cornerstone to the work of food cooperatives.
Like the organic and green movements, the local movement had an early champion in food co-ops, who for decades have been touting the need to preserve networks of small family farms and independent food producers.
