The Benefits of Buying Locally Grown Foods

Every human being that lives on this earth has to eat. What we choose to eat and where we purchase those foods is a completely different story.

For many Americans, food comes from the local grocery, big box store, or even a gas station. While many of these locations offer fruits and vegetables, they often times have been sitting on shelves or in storage for weeks – sometimes even over a year!

Besides an abnormally long shelf life, much of this produce is also sprayed with conventional pesticides. Recent studies conducted by the University of California, Davis, found that women who lived within a mile of an area that was treated with at least three different types of pesticides had  two-thirds higher risk of having a child with ASD (Autism) or developmental delays.

So sit down, read up, and learn about all the benefits buying locally grown organic produce has to offer! And if you have any questions, feel free to email us at info@twistandsproutfarms.com – thanks!
