The Dirty Dozen: What's In Your Fruit?

Buy Local

Buy fruit and vegetables when they're in season from local farmers. Visit your local farmer's market or join a CSA (community-supported agriculture). In recent years, small, organic farms have sprung up across the country. These farms offer the freshest, most delicious produce you'll find at prices you can afford. Pick-your-own organic farms, such as the Berry Patch Farm in Brighton, Colorado, are also a great choice. Not only would your family benefit, but you'd be supporting small, local farmers as well.
