Tips from Purdue University Help Consumers Buy Food from Local Farmers
Purdue University is encouraging consumers to support local farmers by connecting with them and buying their goods. Some markets are being postponed or potentially canceled, which can present an economic catastrophe for farmers. However, it’s possible to connect with farmers through social media and other digital communications, such as online directories of producers. Some farms are offering CSA deliveries or other alternative marketplaces for their goods. Purdue Extension is also offering information on food safety and produce in season.
