Sweet Corn Season at HCM and the Benefits of Buying Local

Fresh Picked Corn on the CobIt’s that great time of year when freshly picked produce is in season, and you can find it here at HCM! We know local quality and great taste is important to you. That’s why we have produce grown right here by our sister company, Breezy Hill Nursery.

It doesn’t get much better than enjoying delicious veggies in the summer, whether they’re eaten fresh, grilled or sautéed. And having them locally grown is all the better.

Some reminders on the benefits of purchasing locally grown food:

Supports Your Local Community & Economy – When you purchase local food, you’re investing your money in what is important to you. You’re having a direct impact on what effects you and those you care about. In the big picture, you are supporting local families and businesses and boosting your local economy. Just a little bit of spending locally goes a long way! The stigma is out there that buying local means spending more, but this is not always the case. Food that is in season and has little distance to travel is often cheaper. If you are paying a bit more, it may benefit you to ask the question, isn’t it better to know that your money is going to build up your community and you’ll see it making a difference?

Connects You, The Customer – Purchasing local often gives you the opportunity to engage with and even build a relationship with those growing your food. You can have an impact on what you want to see as a customer and have greater knowledge about what you are purchasing.

Frankly, It Tastes Better. No really! – When food is fresh, recently harvested and didn’t have to travel long distances in preservatives and other packing materials, it simply tastes better. It also encourages you to eat what is in season and this benefits your body, greatly.

So, savor this time of year that the weather is warm, delicious local foods are in season and winter is still a distant thought. Find just what you need here at HCM and enjoy this time with friends and family. Make the cookouts great and the memories greater.
