Why Buy Local?

Some Benefits to Buying Local...

  • Freshness and Taste - Local Produce is usually picked at it's peak of ripeness, you will taste the difference!
  • Better for You - Fresh Produce loses nutrients quickly which means the more miles between the farm and your fork, the lower the nutrient content.
  • Preserves Variety and Genetic Diversity - Local Farms can grow niche varities you can't find elsewhere.
  • Supports Local Farm Families - Brookdale started in 1847 and now has it's 7th Generation working here!
  • Strengthens Local Economy - Buying Local keeps money within the community, which contributes to the health of all economic sectors.
  • Preserves Open Space - When you buy local, you contribute to preserving the Rural and Agricultural landscape.
