Americans make 123 million car trips each day, that are short enough to be made on foot.

Why Buy Local?

Fresh produce may begin loosing nutrition within a few days of being harvested. Most produce in the US is picked 4 to 7 days before being placed on supermarket shelves, and is shipped for an average of 1500 miles before being sold for only US grown products! Those distances are substantially longer when we take into consideration produce imported from Mexico, Asia, Canada, South America, and other places.

Support local growers - buy local and eat healthier! 

If you are a local grower or farmer and want to be added to this list, contact one of the Supervisors of Seminole Soil & Water Conservation District.
