Our direct relationships with local, small scale, sustainable family farms include Neversink Farm, Lucky Dog Farm, Tonjes Farm Dairy, Cowbella, Campanelli's Chicken Farm, Snowdance Farm, Slope Farms, Hilly Acres Farm, and many more. Local food provides many benefits: food reaches your table faster, fresher, of higher nutrient quality and with uncompromised accountability.
It tastes better.
Food that is grown closer to home has spent less time in transit and in warehouses so that it is fresher and tastes better.
It is better for you.
The farther that food has to travel, the more nutrients it loses. Locally grown food has more nutritional value.
It creates accountability.
Farmers take responsibility for food that they sell directly to consumers. Consumers take comfort in knowing the source of their food.
It supports the local economy.
Buying from local farmers is a way to sustain rural economies and make sure that small farming communities survive.
It protects the environment. Well-managed farms must have fertile soil and clean water. They maintain ecosystems that plants, animals and humans inhabit.
Lunch time in the Catskills!
