- Many farms are family-owned and operated, and all the farms we visited last week were, some in the third generation!
- All the farms we toured made it a point of showing us how little waste they have, if any! Almost every part of what’s produced is either purchased or recycled. How’s that for being environmentally friendly?
- Education is a big piece of what these smaller farms do, and in the future they all see that part of their business growing as the community continues to yearn for knowledge about the food they eat.
