Shop Local: Northeast Ohio Local Farms

by | May 9, 2020 | Musings

Hello there! After signing up for a summer CSA from Rainbow Farms, I was wondering why it was so tough to find where to purchase local produce. It didn’t seem like there was an easy way to find a farm close by to where I live. So I decided to do a bit of research and the Northeast Ohio Local Farms list was born!

It is so important that we are doing our part during this time (and all times really) to support small businesses! Even small purchases can make a difference. If your favorite farm is missing from the list, please let me know! I would be happy to add it. Currently, the list is focused on farms located in Lake and Geauga Counties along with a couple in Ashtabula and Portage Counties.

I hope that this encourages you to shop local and support a local farm! Happy shopping!
