Summer is here, the birds are chirping, the bees are buzzing, and fruits and vegetables are starting to pop up for sale at roadside stands.
Purchasing produce direct from the source is not only a great way to know exactly where your food has come from and what has gone into the growing of it, but you are also getting it freshly picked since it does not have to be shipped to a store, which means it’ll have a longer shelf life.
When purchasing directly from the grower it also reduces waste as it does not have to be packaged and labelled for retail sale, and you’re supporting your local economy. Below are some local growers located in and near Genesee County:
