Local Foods

Kneehill County has always been an agriculturally based municipality. As the local food movement grows. so does the diversity of food grown and produced within the County-- meats, cheeses, veggies, coffee roasting, even beer is produced here, and many more! Buying local has many benefits including:

  • Fresher, in-season food which tastes better
  • Less transportation and fossil fuel usage
  • Knowing where your food comes from
  • Supporting local families to live and do business in the County, supporting and growing our local economy
