The Top 3 Reasons To Shop Your Local Feed Store.
Shopping local is a great way to give back to the people and places in your community. Shopping at your local feed store is no different. Here’s why we think you should shop local:
- Minimize Your Carbon Footprint: Shopping from your local feed store reduces the environmental impact made by shipping grains and feed across the country. Current estimates indicate that feed production and transport to its final destination account for 18% of all greenhouse gas emissions. By purchasing your animal’s feed from a local supplier, you can help minimize that carbon footprint.
- See The Process For Greater Transparency: When you shop at your local agricultural store, you can talk to people who have witnessed the product being made. Sometimes, if you’re shopping at the actual mill that processes the feed, you can see exactly how it is made. That transparency and relationship typically come with a higher quality product that looks and smells great.
- Contribute To Your Community: This is perhaps the greatest benefit of shopping at your local store. When you buy products from a local business, you’re supporting employment opportunities for your friends and neighbors and contributing to the taxes that help run your town or city.
