All societies, and indeed all of life, fundamentally depend on their food economies. Without them, communities and nations collapse. We are all stakeholders in the success of our local farms, and I hope that each community member can support local agriculture by visiting our local farm stands, farmers markets and farms. If every person in the county made the commitment to buy regularly at least one locally grown product per week, this would make a huge difference for our farmers and their families. Give our farmers some face time and Facebook time!
