Whether it’s produce, meat, seafood, poultry or dairy, Hearn Kirkwood goes above and beyond to find the freshest products available for our customers.
There are many benefits that come with eating locally grown foods because renewable farming techniques are used to grow (or raise) the food and increase quality of produce and meat. Locally grown food is better for your body than non-local and non-organic food.
Farmers reap agriculture benefits from producing locally grown foods because they use renewable energy to grow the produce or raise animals.
Using renewable energy, such as wind power harnessing and solar panels, helps farmers:
-Cut down high energy costs
-Reduce farming waste products
-And help farmers become more self-sustainable.
