Easter is nearly upon us, and with that comes celebration and delicious food! It’s important to think of our local businesses when deciding on holiday meals and treats this year, and supporting local is something we at Hansen Land Co take pride in. We want to share with you a few tidbits on why we believe shopping local not only benefits Alberta as a whole, but says a whole lot about how we support each other within the agricultural community.
When shopping for that several dozen eggs you and the kids are planning to decorate this Easter, consider purchasing from an Alberta egg farmer rather than from the big corporate stores. It’s such an easy decision when you know that the product is homegrown and fresh. If you’re confused as to where to start looking for nearby egg farmers, well, it’s as easy as looking through this website for more information.
Though Alberta is world renowned for our delicious beef, we also take pride in raising other animals with the same quality care. If pork is what’s on the menu this Easter, it’s not hard to find local pork producers you can trust. When deciding how to prepare your pork, take a peek here to learn where you can find it locally produced. You can also search incredible recipes to wow your family over the dinner table.
However you decide to celebrate Easter with your loved ones this year, do consider supporting local farmers and ranchers. Albertans know that the best way to take care of each other is to support one another. If our loyalty lies in our locals, the benefits of buying back into our fellow Albertans only continues to multiply growth and prosperity within our farming community and our families. When shopping for your tasty recipes, visit local farmers markets and do your research when it comes to where to buy local food. Easter is about bringing the family together, so let’s put families first in Alberta this Easter.
