Beginning in July, the Doylestown Food Co-op will select two local farmers each month and tell their story. There will be opportunities to meet the farmers and learn more about them, sample some of the fruits of their labors and learn new recipes. A coupon for 20 percent off the featured producer’s products at the Co-op will be available each month in Natural Awakenings magazine.
The Co-op exists to support our local producers and give the community convenient access to these amazing local products without having to drive all over the greater county region to get them. By giving consumers an opportunity to learn more about the producers, the co-op helps to explain how buying from them keeps dollars local and keeps farmers farming.
The program will kick off by highlighting Eric and Linda of Barefoot Gardens, in Doylestown, and Sloane and Scott of Quarry Hill Farm, in Telford. At Barefoot Gardens, Eric and Linda have been providing chemical-free, organic vegetables and flowers to their community since 2007. Sloane and Scott at Quarry Hill Farm are committed to sharing their desire for healthy, nutrient-rich, organic meat and vegetables with their whole community.
Location: Doylestown Food Co-op, 29 W. State St., Doylestown. For more information, call 215-348-4548 or visit Doylestown.coop. July 2014.
