During these uncertain times, small businesses need our support more than ever to keep the economy going. Supporting farmers in the area is a great way to keep the local economy flourishing while contributing to the livelihood of farmers who work so hard to grow food and produce. Not only does it benefit their business, locally grown food tastes better because it spends less time in transit, requiring less chemicals for preservation. This minimal use of chemicals is also better for the environment. If you’re looking for local farmers in the CSRA to support, here are a few to look into that are a part of Augusta Locally Grown.
