LITCHFIELD PARK, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Every Thursday in Show the Love, we partner with Local First Arizona to highlight the programs offered by Local First to build stronger businesses in our community. This week, we talk about Local First's Food and Farms Initiatives. The Good Food Film Series increases awareness about our local farming community and the importance of how we as consumers need to understand where are food comes from and support local.
Blue Sky Organic Farms is a family run farm located in Litchfield Park, AZ. They have been farming in sunny Arizona since 1995 and are extremely proud to be Certified Organic. When you purchase from Blue Sky Organic Farms, you can rest assured that their produce has been grown with your health in mind. They are certified by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and use organic, non-GMO, and untreated seed. Their produce is cultivated in accordance to the federal standards set by the USDA National Organic Program.
You can find their produce at Saturday Farmer’s Markets throughout the valley including: Downtown Phoenix, Old Town Scottsdale, Roadrunner, Uptown, and Gilbert Farmer’s Market. Their produce and other healthful products are also available within their Farm Store located at their farm.
They offer a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program in which community members can support their farm in exchange for a weekly or bi-weekly share of our harvest. This is an ideal way to “vote with your dollar”: dedicating your dollar to agricultural practices that benefit you, your community, and the environment.
Engaging in a local CSA program allows you to know where your food comes from (right here in beautiful, Litchfield Park, AZ) and how it is grown. Not only are members supporting the farm but they’re also helping to strengthen our local economy and food supply. Your support matters. Without dedicated community members, Maricopa County is slated to lose the majority of its small farms in the next few years due to increased commercial/residential development in the area.
