Over the past few years, we have formed some wonderful, friendly relationships with our local farmers. I can tell you that they love nothing more than the work they do, and they love it when we, their customers, show interest in that work. Building relationships with our farmers and ranchers is, I believe, a key part of the entire concept of nourishing, traditional, whole foods. It is about so much more than just buying the foods we want to eat. It’s about community!
