In the past few months I have felt called to live a more simple lifestyle. I would love to grow all of our own food, meat, and milk. I would love to not set foot in Walmart or other grocery stores again, however at this point in our life I'm not able to do all of that.
I have expanded our gardens by adding various fruit and more vegetables but it's not enough to last us until next summer. I have been on a quest to find low cost local food that I can buy that I can put up for this winter. Our farmer's market does have decent deals but you can't depend on finding a huge quantity of low cost produce each week.
We do live surrounded by Amish farms with roadside stands that I also purchase vegetables from but today we are going to a large produce auction. I'm hoping that the prices will be low and quality will be great.
Finding local produce works for me...for more ideas check out We are that Family
