Founder and president of Local Harvest
Guillermo Payet is the founder and president of Local Harvest the largest directory of family farms and businesses such as farm markets and restaurants that support family farms. The directory includes over 8,300 farms across the United States. The freshest, healthiest, most flavorful organic food is what's grown closest to you. Family farms also play a great role in preserving many varieties of fruits and vegetables. Localharvest.org also has information about CSAs. A CSA, (for Community Supported Agriculture) is a way for the food buying public to create a relationship with a farm and to receive a weekly basket of produce. By making a financial commitment to a farm, people become "members" (or "shareholders," or "subscribers") of the CSA.
Guillermo joins the guys to talk about his group and how we all can eat well by eating good and help keep our family farmers on the farm at the same time.
