Locally Grown Goodness

Locally grown food not only tastes better, but it's also better for you. Many people are curious about where their food comes from and what farming practices have been used in the process. 

At Buckingham farms, the knowledge of agricultural specialists is put to good use, using less space to grow more crops. Responsible farming is only practiced. 

There are a few reasons fresh, local food is beneficial for your health.

You are allowed to really connect with your food. You may also become more conscious of what foods you are putting into your body. Additionally, you can take pride in the fact that you are supporting local businesses by shopping locally. 

Environmental Impact

Farm-to-table restaurants are creating a stir in the restaurant industry. The concept behind this movement is advantageous.

In having a direct relationship, farms and restaurants can ensure the highest quality food and ingredients. Consumers can enjoy eating a meal with ingredients freshly harvested merely hours ago.

Buckingham Farms takes pride in its naturally grown produce. Agricultural specialists with extensive knowledge ensure that all farm-produced products are top-notch. 

The Fort Myers area can provide you with a complete farm-to-table experience. Order a delicious meal, pick up your fresh produce, or reserve a place for your destination event. 

Why Farm-To-Table Is So Important

Farm-to-table is the healthiest choice not only benefiting you but your local community.

Supermarkets and grocery stores often source their products from other countries. While this may be cheaper in some areas, the quality of produce lacks more often than not.

Nothing is more disappointing than buying what you thought was fresh food at your local supermarket, only to find within a few days it had gone bad. Keep in mind you don't need to buy a ton of locally sourced foods and products at once to make a difference. Slowly transition.

The farm-to-table approach not only benefits you as the consumer but helps to boost the local economy

The farm-to-table concept helps the environment. When produce doesn't have to be transported long distances, this cuts back on greenhouse gases filtering into the atmosphere. 

Local fresh food is more plentiful thanks to farm-to-table restaurants. Communities have more access to organic foods reaping the benefits.
