Keep an eye out for the 2019 Local Food Guide coming out next month. In case you don’t know, the Guide is the Southeastern Massachusetts compilation of all things to do with local fruits & veggies, dairy, meat, and seafood as well as local fiber. SEMAP member farms are highlighted in the Guide so you can easily find them and support them. We also have some brand-new advertisers we think you will find useful. Your last chance to get an advertisement in the Guide is this week. Reach out to us if you are interested in placing an ad! And if you would like a stack or case of the 2019 Guides for your business or farmers’ market, please contact us and we will drop them off.
May is Beef Month – just in time for Memorial Day weekend and graduation parties. The best beef can be found in Southeastern Massachusetts pastures. Our farmers are using regenerative methods to pasture-raise their animals, which is good for you and for our environment. There are several ways to buy beef from local farms including through some new venues: Meatworks has opened their retail store, Copicut Farms is offering Jordan Farm beef, and Weatherlow Farm’s new farmstand is open.
