Support local farmers this thanksgiving
Iowa Ag Connection - 11/17/2023

Farmers are encouraging consumers to shop locally for their Thanksgiving meals this year. They believe that buying locally can bring more money back into the local economy and help consumers get a better sense of what is in their food.

Instead of just a few cents of each dollar spent on a Thanksgiving meal going back to the farmers who produced the ingredients, locally buying turkeys and other Thanksgiving staples allows farmers to get a larger share of the money.

This can help farmers keep their businesses running and provide them with the resources they need to continue producing safe and nutritious food for their communities.

In addition to supporting local farmers, shopping locally for Thanksgiving meals can also give consumers a better sense of where their food comes from and how it was raised.

This can help consumers make more informed decisions about what they eat and feel better about the food they are serving to their families.

If you want to buy locally for your Thanksgiving meal, there are many resources available to help you find local farmers and food producers.

You can also visit your local farmers' market or search online for local farms that sell Thanksgiving meal ingredients.

By shopping locally, you can help support your local economy and get a better sense of where your food comes from.
