You may be thinking, like I have, "How do I get more of my food dollar into the farmers' pockets?" The easy answer is to go direct to the source when you can. Buy from local producers to cut out the "middle men." Buy whole foods that are in season, and ones that do not require a lot of packaging or marketing. In the end, you may be doing your health a huge favor.
Produce you may be able to find in Kentucky at this time of the year include apples, broccoli, pears, pumpkins, winter squash and turnips.
