Esselon regularly buys, local products and services from area businesses and farms whenever possible.
Buying local supports a more sustainable food system because true sustainability goes beyond the methods used in food production to include every step that brings food from farm to plate.
People worldwide are rediscovering the benefits of buying local food. It is fresher than anything in the supermarket and that means it is tastier and more nutritious. It is also good for the local economy – buying directly from family farmers helps them stay in business.
We are a member of CISA which has been instrumental in getting us in contact with local farmers.
