In the Adirondacks we are fortunate to have a growing number of small local farms to supply us with fresh, safe, and healthy food.
It is more important then ever during the COVID-19 crises to support the growing number of small farms that rely on the community to remain viable.
If you wish to join the Adirondack Council’s Essex Farm Institute in continuing to help local farmers, below are some suggestions of how you can give your support:
Buy local food by checking out the ADK Harvest Map: Choose “Farmstand” or “CSA” in order to see locations where you can purchase food.
Door to door delivery and curbside pick-up, or shopping at your local farmers market are good options as well.
If you are looking for other ways to help, most farms offer farm credits or gift certificates, all you have to do is call and ask.
Writing and calling elected officials to ensure that stimulus funds will remain available and accessible to local farms and small businesses, and that small parks and areas where a farmers market could be held remain open would be another way to help.
