Local Foods

We strive to foster strong communities based on diverse ties between farmers and non-farmers.

One of the strongest ties is purchasing food and farm products from local farms. Buying from local farms keeps money circulating in your community, and builds a more resilient food system.

If you are interested in purchasing food raised on PFI-member farms, the directory below can help you find farmers near you. Try the search bar to look for nearby cities or towns, or specific products.
