Best Web site for finding farm products in your area

 |  NCR Today

It's the height of summer, and time to visit your local farmers' market for fresh sweet corn, green beans, squash and tomatoes. The best organic food is what's grown closest to you. Use the Local Harvest Web site to find farmers' markets, family farms, and other sources of sustainably grown food in your area, where you can buy produce, grass-fed meats, and many other goodies. Support this great site. Shop in their catalog for things you can't find locally.

Scattered throughout the site are tips for gardening, recipes, together with links to blogs from individual family farms around the country that use sustainable growing practices. The blogs are fascinating reading and informative on the ways people meet the challenges family farming faces today.
