Buying local is getting easier and cheaper all the time. I see farmer’s market stands all over the place. Not only produce is being sold either, you can find eggs and even grass fed beef right in our area. My Dad is an organic farmer and grows for a market in his area (Ellwood Thompson’s, Richmond VA). I went to their website to get the basics on how important it is to buy local. The main reasons include: it tastes better, it’s better for you, it is not genetically modified, it supports local farm families, it supports community, it keeps your taxes in check and it helps the environment.
Right now apples are in season big time. I know that one highlight of our Team ThrowDown was Tiff’s apple crisp. So check out the recipe below and go out and buy some local apples, there are lots to choose from!
