How Can You Save Money Buying Locally?

  1. I agree! It’s amazing what you can find locally if you really try. We have a meat CSA and all meats (grass-finished beef and lamb and pastured pork, chicken and turkey are just $5/lb for ALL cuts).

You truly can support local farmers, eat local organic foods and save money.
