While many people are struggling during COVID-19, local farmers saw interest in their products surge with steep increases in sales practically overnight.
From a first-generation meat farmer raising heritage breed pigs, cows, sheep, goats and chickens to a fourth-generation dairy farmer whose heritage breed cow's milk makes all kinds of cheeses, spreads and yogurts to the Weavers Way Co-Op stores and farmers market, people are buying local now more than ever.
And farmers, accustomed to struggling, are seeing record sales.
