Why Buy Local?

Becoming a Locavore (or rather, a "Mostly-Locavore" when you live in Central Oregon) may sound like a daunting task, but it is a noble and rewarding one. There are myriad of benefits to eating and buying local goods:


  • Supporting farmers who grow for taste, diversity, and health vs transportation durability and uniformity
  • Creating local jobs vs supporting large corporate systems
  • Enhanced nutrition vs mineral/vitamin deficiencies
  • Robust, ever-changing flavors vs blandness and consistency
  • Sustainable farming practices and soil-rehabilitation vs pollution and soil degredation
