Buy local

Locally grown food has countless benefits to offer, such as:
  • Increasing your understanding of where your food comes from and how it’s grown
  • Reducing your carbon footprint and supporting more environmentally friendly farming practices
  • Supporting the local economy and encouraging a sense of community
  • Increasing the health benefits and flavour of your food
  • Improving food security

Many families are now choosing to join this growing movement by purchasing part or all of their groceries from a local source.

A list of local farms in the Merrickville-Wolford area is provided below. Each farm offers a choice of services from CSAs to home-cooked prepared meals, and many offer tours so you can see for yourself whether their practices meet your needs. Contact them to find out more about their products and open yourself up to a whole new range of possibilities.

Did you know? Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a food production and distribution system that directly connects farmers and their customers. People pay upfront at the beginning of the season for their shares of a farm's harvest and then receive a portion of the crops as they are harvested. Check the list below for farms that offer CSAs.

If you know of a farm that we may want to add to the list, please contact us at: info@sustainableMW.org.
