From the desk of Dan Ponchet

Well, we can’t believe it’s been a year already but we’re back and proud to present the 32nd edition of the annual Farm Fresh Guide! A lot has happened during the past year, including the launch of our new website, It is a valuable tool to help you connect with farms in your area or during your travels. A new location feature makes it easier than ever to search for farms or specific products. We’re also active on Facebook, Twitter and new this year, Instagram, so make sure you follow us for updates straight from the fields, pastures, or orchards.
The first guide was published in 1987 and we’ve come a long way since then but our mission has remained the same. Buying direct from the farm will not only keep you supplied with fresh, tasty and nutritious food but it will also ensure our local agricultural industry continues to flourish. But no local meal is complete without a tasty beverage so while you’re out shopping, make sure to stop by one of the local wineries, cideries or distilleries. We look forward to seeing you again this year!
