Did you know each Canadian farmer can produce enough food to feed 120 people for a year? Quite amazing!
With the growing season upon us, this is the time to buy locally grown fruits and vegetables or try growing a few on your own. You can visit your local farmer’s market, sign up for a Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) Food Basket or even look in your local grocery store.
Locally grown produce is a great choice because it is better for the environment, supports local Ontario farmers and tastes delicious when freshly picked. Farms that offer “pick your own” are also great opportunities to plan a day trip for family and friends to learn more about local farms and crops. Don’t miss out, get to know your local farmers and try some fresh, locally grown produce.
