Prime Cuts Supports Local Growers
Why buy local? Locally grown food tastes better and is better for you. It is fresh, usually being picked within a couple of days. When produce is traveling on a truck for long distances, sugars turn into starches, produce loses its vitality and plant cells shrink. In fact, when you choose locally grown foods they tend to retain more nutrients than other produce. Sustainable farming benefits the local community and economy while also supporting the environment. Local farmers are not licensed to genetically modify fruits and vegetables, so their produce is more natural. Supporting local farmers help the farmers afford to stay working on the farm, doing the work they love.
By supporting and buying locally, you can help ensure that there will be farms in your community with a future that is flourishing with flavorful, nutritious and never-ending supply of fruits and vegetables.
