Local Foods & Farms

Local food sustains world communities, economically and nutritionally. Garrett County’s home-grown harvest includes produce, poultry, dairy, and other staples friendly to your diet—and to your budget. 
Garrett County is reinventing its rural economy by promoting the “Buy Local” movement loudly and proudly. Resources ranging from the Garrett Farms website, to the Garrett Growers Cooperative exhibit a collaborative commitment to accessible, fresh food. An appreciation for local food—from farmers’ market loyalists to local restaurant patrons—mirrors a shift on a global scale. People are increasingly aware of where their food comes from and how it’s farmed and prepared. Sample our healthy harvest at the Garrett Farms website.
