Fauquier Agricultural HomeGrown Program

 

 0001--681925 

Fauquier Agricultural HomeGrown Label program has been implemented for  consumers to create easy access to fresh local food that tastes better, is more nutritious, and supports the local economy.

  "…Farmers [have been reduced] to less than 1 percent of the U.S. population… and food now travels on average 1,500 to 2,500 miles from farm to plate in the U.S.," [Ahn, 2004]. Look for the HomeGrown logo to enhance your communities' ability to become self-reliant and sustainable. Supporting Fauquier County agricultural producers will also provide food security.

 

By making the choice to buy agricultural products and produce with the Fauquier Agricultural

 HomeGrown logo you are supporting local farmers and helping to ensure the prosperity of your own community. "Saving farmland is an investment in community infrastructure and economic development. It supports local government budgets and the ability to create wealth locally. In addition, distinctive agriculture landscapes are often magnets for tourism" (American Farmland Trust, 2003).
