We support Fresh from Flagler. The second most powerful economic engine in Flagler County is agriculture but not enough of it finds its way onto the plates of Flagler families. 

The pandemic wreaked havoc on too many of our families. Families with lost jobs. Children lost access to school lunches. Restaurant owners lost nearly everything. And the pandemic choked sales channels for farmers and ranchers. Then the rains came. Lots of rain ruining crops and hayfields. 

It's time. Flagler County must prioritize local agriculture. 

Fresh from Flagler was started by Huckleberry Farms in support of local farmers, ranchers, foresters, foragers, homesteaders, hobby farmers and gardeners. Now Fresh from Flagler has the support of growers, ranchers, restaurants, cottage foodpreneurs, artists, florists, caterers, food truck operators and fresh food lovers.

It's time for Flagler County, Palm Coast, Bunnell and Flagler Beach to get Fresh from Flagler on our plates, burning in our bonfires, growing in our yards, served in our school cafeterias, cooking in our hospital kitchens, delivered to our senior citizens, planted in our medians and blooming along our roads! 

It's time to address rules and regulations that make it more difficult for growers to sell locally. It's time to address the rules and regulations that make it more difficult to operate a farm locally. It's time to address the food desert and lack of farmer's markets. It's time to prioritize locally grown items in government purchasing. 

It's time to GROW Flagler County.
