Farm to Desk program starting in Plymouth

PLYMOUTH — Local Foods Plymouth (LFP) is a new initiative that offers area employees custom delivery of their favorite produce, dairy, meats, maple syrup, and more. Amy Sulllivan, Project Coordinator of the Farm to Desk Project, will speak about the program in the large conference room at the Enterprise Center at Plymouth on Thursday, August 28, from noon to 1 p.m.

The Farm to Desk Project has many goals: to connect specialty crop producers with businesses/employees thus expanding the customer base of local farmers, increase year-round easy access to specialty crops, reduce farmers' costs for selling specialty crops, reduce energy consumption of food related transportation, improve NH's food security by strengthening viability of local farms, and help sustain the local economy using "Local Multiplier Effect".

This free event is open to anyone interested in learning more about the Farm to Desk Project or to sign up for the program. Plan to arrive early as samples may be available. Local Foods Plymouth connects local farmers with area residents to support local agriculture and the community by enabling easier access to fresh, local foods. Through an online outlet, LFP aims to encourage community members to become more aware of sustainable local food providers who grow, source, and make products while helping communities reduce their energy consumption related to food.

For more information about the Farm to Desk Project or Local Foods Plymouth, visit www.localfoodsplymouth.org or call 603-536-5030.
