Since social distancing measures are in full effect, many of us are wondering a few things — how we can continue to support our local businesses from afar and how we can continue to eat healthy when those quarantine snacks in the pantry look so tempting. Rest assured, there are ways to do both of those things, right from the comfort of your home — enter local farms.

Grabbing some fresh produce + meat from local farms and butcher shops {online that is} is a great way to shop local, offer some support to small business owners, and eat fresh, nutrient-packed meals. Even during this pandemic, many of these businesses are still offering delivery and pick up so you can continue to eat well + enjoy locally sourced food right at your kitchen table {or bed, no judgment here}. 

So, while you work on staying healthy + staying home — support your local farms and butchers by ordering your next grocery list from one of these companies {which deliver directly to Hoboken + Jersey City}.
