Did you know…
Close to Home are solar Farmers?
All of the energy consumed from Close to Home’s crops comes from one source: the sun. The green leaves of their plants are each tiny solar panels that collect energy and nutrients, which become available to us as the food we eat. That means we have amazing abundance of energy available to us, provided we employ a set of practices that is sustainable well into the future…awesome!!
