It is with delight to hear the push for the 100 Mile diet, fresh home grown food, know where your food comes from, as it is these trends that put success in the small, family farmers pockets! Selling locally has the benefits of developing a small business based on honor and integrity and in turn have loyal repeat customers. Result: A stable, successful income from Agriculture! Something you can't develop when you don't know your own customer - and they don't know you, or when your product(s) get lumped in with everybody elses. Community agriculture is an opportunity to produce something better.
