Sustainable Farm to Table in Missouri

    Sustainable agriculture practices provide many benefits to the St. Louis community. From local farmers markets to restaurants, everyone wants a bite of this traditional technique. Sourcing locally has a simultaneous benefit to both the environment and the people who engage with the practice. By providing seasonal vegetables, herbs, and animal proteins from farms less than 50 miles from downtown St. Louis, consumers stimulate the economy and introduce their tastebuds to foods that could be grown in their own back yard. Being sustainable isn’t easy, but with a little growing pain a self sufficient system like sustainable farming could be part of the key to a brighter future.
