The Alabama Sustainable Agriculture Network (ASAN) has compiled a spreadsheet of local Alabama farms that supply fruits, meats, eggs, dairy, vegetables, and more. This is a time when a lot of people are really focused on the availability of healthy and safe fresh food. Small farmers are at risk as their supply chains are disrupted, but we’re all at risk when we rely on food supply chains that stretch across countries or even continents. Whatever we can do to help keep our local farmers afloat is a win/win.
From ASAN’s announcement:
These are difficult, uncertain times, and many of our typical supply lines are strained or cut off. But local farmers are here for you! Many are needing your support more than ever, as they have lost critical sales to restaurants or other outlets that are temporarily closed or scaled-back.
We at ASAN we are dedicated to building new and deeper connections between farmers and their fellow Alabamians. We know that food is not just nutrition — it’s an opportunity to build community. And when have we been made more aware of the need for strong community, than right now?
We’ve mobilized to compile a statewide directory of local farms to help you find locally raised fruits, veggies, meats, eggs, dairy, and more — grown in YOUR area, by YOUR neighbors. Clink this link (it’s a Google spreadsheet) to navigate by region and county to find farms raising the food you need!
