This is a list of local farms. With this information, more of us will know who to contact, or where to go when we want local foods. I think its really important to support our local farmers. :D
There is a link at the bottom to a website where i got this information, along with a map to show where the farms are... It doesnt look like the greatest map in the world, but you can always
map quest the address to these farms if your interested in going to them for some delicious local foods. :)
