This morning while on the treadmill trying to work off my winter weight, I found myself dreaming about Cape Cod Creamery. Go figure, excercise and ice cream! As my mind wandered, I began thinking about Cape Cod’s local food movement, and all of the great local businesses that have sprung up on Cape Cod over the past few years. In general the local/regional food movement is associated with sustainable agriculture best described as, the production of food, fiber, or other plant or animal products using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare. This form of agriculture enables us to produce healthful food without compromising future generations’ ability to do the same.
While we believe that sustainability is extremely important, and should be practiced whenever possible, we also believe that supporting our local economy is paramount. For that reason we think it is crucial to highlight both sustainable and local products. From farms to ice cream, cheese to chocolate, here are some new and noteworthy local food businesses that deserve your attention!
