Support local. Know your farmer. Eat local, whenever possible.
Sound familiar? All buzzwords we are used to hearing lately.
These are also all reasons why Local County exists. Our mission has always been to "Connect local producers with local buyers".
We believe that people value connection with their local community. They want to make smart consumer decisions while having meaningful experiences. For example, the 2018 Local County summer u-pick guide was created to give some ideas for those asking the question "where can I find a good u-pick to visit in the Edmonton area?"
If "living locally" is important to you, the Local County website is a place to start to introduce you to some great local farmers, artists, producers, creatives.
Life is pretty full of noise and advertising, and "living locally" can feel like a noble but unattainable goal, but like other major life changes it just requires small steps to begin.
