Who are the people who enjoy fresh farm food?

Who are the people excited about the growing availability of fresh farm food?  Yamhill Valley Grown  connects local farmers and consumers in a new way! Surveys have identified many different motivations for enjoying this amazing service that brings food right to your door:

  • the foodie who seeks out fresh and interesting food to put on their plate often and always,
  • the vegan who is thrilled that there is a new source for fresh produce and vegan products easily accessible,
  • the trendie who enjoys services that are “HOT” and then repeats the experience because it feels good,
  • the retro who is seeking to return to the food they tasted when they had access to farm food as a child,
  • the smart shopper  who realizes that their food budget stretches further and the food stays fresher longer
  • the home town proud who manages not only to support the local service but the local farmers,
  • the annoyed who realizes their impact on the national economy is minimal but they can have significant impact on the health of the local economy by keeping their spending local 
  • the concerned who wants to know their farmer and avoid eating chemicals,
  • and more…what’s YOUR reason for eating local food?

As the excitement in the locavore food movment grows, there seems to be an angry component of people who criticize the lack of access to local food markets.  Recognition of food “deserts” has begun to grow and efforts are being made in inner city areas such as New York,BostonDetroit and another one in Detroit,  Oakland,Kansas City, Chicago and Camden.  Even areas that might not be economically blighted and may have markets like Vancouver,BC  and Baltimore have increased interest in growing food in the burbs.

This is NOT just an upscale “yuppie” movement. What all these people have in common is the DESIRE to eat local and the motivation to make that happen.  It can;t be any easoer than this:  order online with Yamhill Valley Grown and have the food delivered to your doorstep!!  Go to the website now to order!!! Don’t put it off and get caught behind the deadline!

Beth and Graham met online almost 20 years ago and married in 2007. Planning for retirement has included finding more time to play again and creativity is blooming. Now that we have moved to Oregon our time is split between exploring and creative endeavors. What fun! Following several years enmeshed in the local food movement in West Virginia and active involvement in the establishment and running of a year-round indoor local food market, visiting farms and telling consumers about them is a work of joy.
