Local Food

Tisha Casida with Paul & Tammy Alhadef of A Wren's Nest Farm

Sustainability and economics go hand in hand especially when we consider our food supply.  Supporting local food systems is not only better for our health, better for the economy, and better for the environment – it just tastes better!

I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of small businesses, many of them farmers, ranchers, and producers.  In working with these people who contribute to our local food supply, I am often amazed at how disconnected we are, but how easy it is to reconnect and become a part of a food supply that is closer to us.

“Know Your Farmer” and “Know Your Rancher” are catch-phrases that should encourage all of us to start asking the question “Where is our food coming from?”.  The more we do this, the more we will become aware of the people around us that sustain our communities and are an integral part of a sustainable and prosperous community.
