We are farmers! Our parents are farmers, and so were their parents before them. For as long as we can remember, our family has been planting and caring for our earth. A tradition that we continue to pass down through Treadwell Farms!
As Earth Day approaches, we are reminded of the importance of taking care of our planet and supporting sustainable practices, now more than ever before. At Treadwell Farms, we believe that where you get your CBD matters, and that shopping local for CBD is not only good for product quality and consistency but also for the environment and local farmers.
Let’s look at 5 reasons why:
FRESH IS BEST
First and foremost, fresh is best when it comes to CBD products. Imported hemp often sits in warehouses for extended periods of time before it reaches consumers, which can diminish the quality of the CBD and, consequently, its effectiveness. By shopping locally, you can be sure that the hemp used in your CBD products is fresh and of the highest quality.
SUPPORT LOCAL FARMERS
In addition to supporting product quality, shopping local for CBD also supports local farmers and helps to keep communities thriving.
When you choose to buy locally grown and produced CBD products, you are supporting the livelihoods of local farmers and their families. This can help to build strong, resilient communities and create more opportunities for sustainable agriculture for generations to come.
Time and time again, we hear from regular cannabis users that they have difficulties finding the same products at their go-to stores that import their products from all over the country.
Local farmers often have long-standing relationships with their partners, especially those that supply their seeds, seedlings, and rooted cuttings. This means that you can expect the same variety of hemp and CBD in your product every time, ensuring consistent product quality and effectiveness.
KEEP FLORIDA GREEN
OK, we know this sounds like a campaign slogan, but we are campaigning for our planet!
When you buy locally, you are also helping to keep Florida green. As demand for local agriculture increases, so does the demand for farmland. This can help preserve natural landscapes in the state.
By supporting local farmers, you are contributing to the protection of important ecosystems and biodiversity in your community.
HELP THE PLANET
But the benefits of shopping local for CBD don't stop there.
Lastly, importing food and products takes a major toll on the environment, especially with the transportation of produce that requires significant amounts of gas and refrigeration. By buying locally grown and produced CBD products, you can help to reduce the environmental impact of transportation and support a more sustainable food system.
At Treadwell Farms, we are committed to supporting local farmers and providing our customers with the highest quality, locally grown, and produced CBD products. Our products are made with hemp grown in Central Florida, and we oversee every step of the production process to ensure that our products meet the highest standards of quality and sustainability.
As we celebrate Earth Day, we encourage you to consider the impact of your purchasing decisions on the environment and local communities. By choosing to shop local for CBD products, you can support fresh, high-quality products, local farmers and their families, and a more sustainable and resilient food system.
