We asked ourselves this: Can we create an entire meal – soup to nuts – from food produced only in Broome, Tioga, Chenango and Delaware counties? We found it’s more a matter of menu choice than availability.
We created Buy from the Backyard to show you the value of buying local food in upstate New York. It’s tastier. It’s healthier. It helps your family and community prosper and grow. And most important – it’s fun.
If you eat just $15 worth of local food each week, you add $780 a year to the local economy. If everyone does it, that adds up to more than $86 million a year.
So check out the farmers markets, the farm stands, the CSAs and the recipes we offer.
Buy local. Eat local. Become a locavore. Because nothing tastes better than food you Buy from the Backyard.
