WHY IS LOCAL IMPORTANT?
There is something so magical, fulfilling and satisfying about picking and eating your own fruit from an orchard or sourcing fresh herbs from the garden to add to your cooking.
At Corn Factory Pamonharia we enjoy knowing the history behind our farmers, what motivates these people to bring the best that nature has to offer to our plates.
Most of the fruits and vegetables we buy from the local supermarkets travel long distances and often we forget their origin or their real story remains a mystery.
Locally grown produce not only tastes better but by supporting our local farmers we can ensure that future generations will always have access to nourishing, health, flavorsome and fresh food. Corn Factory’s mantra is to focus on strengthening our community by investing our food dollar closer to home.
“A healthy and well-balanced meal that is a nutritional masterpiece”.
