Fruits and vegetables are better when grown locally. Why? Because this delicious produce isn’t subject to the industrialization methods of growing modern produce on a large scale. Locally grown produce is healthier and tastier because it contains more nutrients and less pesticides. Much of our locally grown produce is grown following organic practices, but in order to get the Organic seas from the USDA, you have to pay a lot of money. Our local farmers have better whole foods than you can find in the grocery stores.
