Why eat local?
There are lots of good reasons why eating local – or being a “locavore” – is good for you. Studies show a correlation
between local foods and good health. Locally sourced foods may have greater nutritional value
. And when your food doesn’t have to travel as far, it’s likely to be fresher and have fewer preservatives.
It’s also better for the local economy
(by keeping dollars in your community) and the environment (by cutting down the distance required to transport food to your table).
All these reasons help explain why the locavore movement is exploding! In 2014, there were 8,268 farmers’ markets operating in the U.S. – nearly three times as many as in 2006! But despite all this growth, people still have a hard time finding local food. That’s why Local Hens is here.
"Local Hens has been such a great resource for finding locally grown food for
my family! We’ve created great relationships with our local farmers and
could not be happier with the quality of the truly farm fresh goodies!"
