Your Local BC Farmers
Your Local Farmer
We are extremely proud and excited to introduce you to a few of our local BC dairy farmers and food producers. It is our sincere hope that by learning more about them, you will see their passion and the dedication that goes on behind the scenes to produce your food. We hope that you see the connections between the conscientious growers, their connection to the community and the great products they make.
Supporting Our Local Farmers and Our Local Community
When you buy local, you are directly supporting local food growers. Doing so, you ensure that they are able to keep producing wonderful local food products by investing back into your local economy to strengthen your local community as a whole. It’s basically a simple self-perpetuating cycle benefiting everyone.
Love Your Earth
The less distance our food has to travel from field to fork, the better it is for our planet. The further food has to travel (by truck, train and boat) the more energy is spent and the more pollutants are expelled into our environment. Nobody likes that. Buying local helps to reduce our ecological footprint.
Fresh is Best
Any chef will tell you that fresh really is best. It’s really simple. Fresher food is tastier. When you choose local food, it maintains the highest level of nutritional value and taste because it hasn’t been subjected to a long journey. Not to mention the preservatives that might be added to food making these lengthy journeys.
Therefore, the simplest way to ensure you get the best product is to choose to purchase the product that had to travel the least distance to your kitchen. Tastier and more nutritious – sounds good to us.
Connect With Your Food and Gain Piece of Mind
Buying local brings peace of mind in knowing that you are providing your family with delicious, healthy food that was gentler on our environment. This comes from knowing where our food was grown, how it was produced, and who grew it. As you become more familiar with the simple mantra “buy local and eat natural” we bet you’ll never go back.
