Friends of the Farms has launched its new Local Food Map, a resource the nonprofit says will make it easier for people to find nearby farms and locally grown food.

Users of the map can learn about local farmers, their farming methods, and where to buy food ranging from vegetables to meat and eggs. Farms that offer CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) are also highlighted, providing consumers a way to directly support the farming community while receiving produce regularly throughout the growing season.

Friends of the Farms notes that it is common for food at the grocery stores to have traveled over a thousand miles before it makes its way into your cart. Purchasing locally grown food from farms utilizing regenerative

farming methods reduces carbon emissions, supports the local economy, and provides nutritious peak-season produce, officials said.

The Local Food Map is by no means exhaustive, and farmers who are not listed are encouraged to contact Friends of the Farms to be included (info@friendsofthefarms.org). The nonprofit said it will continue adding to the map until its serve all of Kitsap County and beyond.
