Benefits of "Buying Local"
Buying local helps us appreciate and utilize the flavors and variety of each season in our recipes, menus and classes. Produce that is locally grown can remain on the vine or branch longer, and is therefore fresher and more flavorful. In addition, local products have a reduced impact on the environment because they don’t have to be trucked from California, Florida or Texas.
In addition, buying local helps sustain neighboring farmers, contributing to the success of Lake Geneva's local growers and economy. Each trip to a local farm or market generates more money, profiting these growers and the local economy. We, at the Lake Geneva School of Cooking, are proud to support the following family farms and businesses:
River Valley Mushroom Farm & Kitchens: Mushrooms & Organic Vegetables, Slades Corner, WI
Wilson Farm Meats: Locally Raised Pork & Smoked Bacon, Elkhorn, WI
Lake Geneva Country Meats: Meats, Sausages, Wine & Produce, Lake Geneva, WI
Yuppie Hill Poultry: Eggs and Poultry, Burlington, WI
Pinn-Oak Ridge Farms: Locally Raised Lamb, Delavan, WI
Reminder: Have your knives sharpened at Blade Works while visiting the Market!
