We can all agree that corn tastes sweeter when it’s from a farm stand, right? Maybe it’s because it’s quick, easy, and convenient. However, picking up some veggies at a roadside stand can also be a great way to support local farmers.
Farmer’s markets are another great way to shop locally and get homegrown produce. Read about the different farmer’s markets in the area by clicking here. However, sometimes it’s tough to swing by those kinds of events.
Here are five farm stands we think you should check out this summer in Racine County.
