One of my missions is to connect my clients with local farmers who provide the best quality meats and produce.  Starting this year I will be visiting local farms, reviewing them and listing those who offer the best prices for the best quality.  Just as I teach my clients how to be smart shoppers in the store, the same applies to buying from farms directly.  The price of meat and produce can greatly vary and I will do the work for you by not only finding the best prices but making sure that the farms fit Becky’s Mindful Kitchen criteria for quality.  If you have a farm or know of a farm that you want me to visit and review, please let me know! We are extremely lucky to have an abundance of local farms and there is no reason not to support your farmer directly.
