Every year the Nevada County Farm Bureau organizes a tour to showcase some of the local agriculture in our community. This year the tour included Forster Herb Garden, Cone & Hill Christmas Tree Farm and Naggiar Vineyards and special guest speaker Nevada County Free Range Beef’s Jim Gates. Everyone agreeed that supporting our local farmers is benefical on many different levels, from fire prevention, quality of food to creating jobs. While all the farmers agreed that it is extremely difficult to be a farmer, Jim Gates sumed it up well when he said he loves his job “every day is a new adventure.” Support your local farmers, either by shopping at a farmer’s market, subscribing to a CSA or buying locally grown products at Briar Patch, California Organics or SPD. You can access the Nevada County Farm Guide online here, think local first.
