What is your favourite local place? Please share them in comments, let’s get to know our community. 6 Benefits for You and Your Community From Supporting Local Entrepreneurs 1. Improve your family’s health. Buying local foods has numerous health benefits to your family. When you buy from local farmers, you have access to fruits and vegetables that you know are chemical free, as well as grass-fed meats, fresh eggs, and dairy from cows that feast on local green grass each day. 2. Improve the local economy. When a consumer buys local, significantly more of that money stays in the community. 3. Know the people behind the product. When you personally know the people behind the business where you’re buying local products and services, you enjoy a connection you would not otherwise have. 4. Keep your community unique. Local businesses give a community its flavor. 5. Better customer service. If you’ve ever dealt with a large corporation, you know getting help can be a nightmare. You’ll call a 1-800 number, only to be transferred seven times and put on hold. Even when you speak to a customer service representative, that person is so far removed from the decision-making process, there’s little concern that the company will lose you as a customer. When you shop local, the business owner is usually directly connected to every employee in the store. That leads to a personal approach that often means any problem you have is taken seriously. 6. More personalized service. Having the owner nearby also means that owner personally knows his customers. He knows the products you buy or the services you request on a regular basis and can tailor services to make your experience even better. Article by John Rampton from www.entrepreneur.com

Show Saskatoon Farm ( @saskatoonfarm ) Stories and Highlights

5 COMMENTS:

We visited your farm on the long weekend for the first time and it was so lovely. We will definitely be back 😊

I'm sad that winter is coming. Just getting re acquainted with the farm and we made the trip down twice in ten days. We will definitely be back. Also, the hog and chicken/rooster enclosure is pretty cool too.

For food you guys and Sobeys, for kids @loopkidsokotoks, for me @mintmapleshop, for working out Natural High, for coffee/treats @cdbloomstudio or @94takethecake or @littlefastfresh. We love supporting local businesses ❤
