Greetings from Agricultural Commissioner Dave Whitmer
I am tremendously excited by the possibilities presented by the creation of the Local Food Advisory Council. This Council, appointed by the Board of Supervisors, will begin to prioritize and work on the creation of a more sustainable local food system for Napa County. In addition to providing opportunities for local farmers, this effort has the potential to improve the health and nutrition for our community through access to fresh and locally grown products to accompany the fine wines already being produced!
For more information concerning the Local Food Advisory Council, check out the links here on our county department website, including the one to Facebook.
With very best wishes from your local Agricultural and Weights and Measures Department’s staff,
Napa County Agricultural Commissioner / Sealer of Weights and Measures
