Buy Local

Yates County is full of variety!

Our region is blessed to have an amazing diversity of agricultural products. It is just a matter of walking out your front door to find everything from produce, meat, dairy, grains, dry beans, wine, cider and so much more!

Our Buy Local Campaign aims to foster the environmental, economic and social vitality of our community by increasing the connections between consumers and farmers. Through outreach, marketing, and special initiatives we seek to raise individual and institutional awareness about the benefits of buying fresh locally grown and made products and to make local food an integral part of daily life.
