First, FRUIT IS FRUIT ๐Ÿ’ Fruit consumption is vital to a well balanced diet, you should always buy fruit in whatever way is accessible to you!! However ๐Ÿ‘€ If you do have access to buying from a local farmer, here are some of the pros:
๐Ÿ“ Letโ€™s talk economics! Buying from local farmers means more money stays in our community. It supports small businesses, creates jobs, and fosters a resilient local economy. Did you know America has lost over 11 million acres of farmland in the last 20 years? By voting with your wallet, youโ€™re empowering farmers to continue their important work, preserving farmland and maintaining our agricultural heritage.
๐ŸŒฑ And what about nutrition? Farm-fresh strawberries are harvested at peak ripeness, ensuring maximum flavor and nutritional value. Unlike their grocery store counterparts, which may have been picked before theyโ€™re fully ripe to withstand long-distance travel, local strawberries are bursting with vitamins, antioxidants, and flavor. Plus, when you buy directly from the farmer, you can ask questions about their growing practices and make informed decisions about what youโ€™re putting on your plate.
๐Ÿซ When you opt for farm-fresh strawberries, youโ€™re not just buying fruit โ€“ youโ€™re investing in a more sustainable food system. Majority of strawberries are grown overseas or across the country where weather is warmer, meaning your fruit is being shipped thousands of miles in large aircraft, boats, and trucks which all release pollution into our environment. Buying locally means minimal transportation and a fruit that can be harvested at peak ripeness, the fresher the fruit the more nutritionally dense with the added plus of a stronger flavor!
๐ŸŽ From field to fork, every bite tells a story โ€“ one of sustainability, community support, and culinary delight. So next time youโ€™re craving strawberries, consider making the trip to your local farmerโ€™s market. Your taste buds, your community, and the planet will thank you!

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ”ง Meet Juniper, Membership & Engagement Coordinator
Born and raised in the Shenandoah Valley, Juniper has worked at Agriberry Farm for four years. She started in the Agriberry Farm kitchen, flitted about to various other roles (marketer, office assistant, tour guide, etc.), and has landed in a unique position that's new to all of us! 
As the Membership & Engagement Coordinator, Juniper manages our Community Support Agriculture (CSA) memberships, hosts educational tours of the farm, writes our weekly educational newsletter, co-manages social media (maybe she's writing this post??), leads our gleaning teams, and so much more! Let's get to know Juniper a little better...
โ“ What is your favorite part of working at Agriberry Farm?
๐Ÿ’ฌ I love experiencing how excited people get about fruit!! I also love learning about small fruit farming, and sharing what I'm learning. 
โ“What is your favorite fruit to eat and why?
๐Ÿ’ฌ Whichever fruit was just fresh harvested, because I know it's the tastiest & most nutritious! Especially when it's sun-warmed and right off the vine. 
โ“Which fruit do you identify with? 
๐Ÿ’ฌ Muscadine grapes! They have a firm exterior & *may* intimidate folks who have never encountered them, but inside they are sweet! They're also native to the southeastern U.S., just like me!
โ“What do you spend your time doing outside of work?
๐Ÿ’ฌ I bake gluten-free sourdough bread & pastries, lovingly tend to my home garden, travel as much as possible, AND I just recently signed up to get my doggo fix by volunteering at RACC. Look out for some Friday Foster action in our stories coming soon ๐Ÿ‘€
โ“Tell us an unknown fact about yourself. 
๐Ÿ’ฌ I'm visiting one new-to-me Virginia State Park a month. If you see me at the farm or at a market, ask me which parks I've got on the list! 
Another fun fact about Juniper: 
๐Ÿˆ She starts all of our Sugar Cube melon plants from seed in her home greenhouse before they're planted here on the farm!
