Local farmers who are more than just farmers, but neighbors. These people are dedicated to providing local produce to the area and in many cases have become close friends to their neighbors. They have also shown the value of slow food even without necessarily being members of that movement. A conservative region, Campbell County is experiencing a slow change, and while most of the farmers are not yet certified organic, it is clear that the younger generation is much more attuned to the need of not only local, but sustainable food production. They deserve all the support we can give them on that journey.
