Local Family Farms-Food Less Travelled

Local Agriculture and Community

Local Family Farms-Food Less Travelled, is a family owned and operated retail business that was established in 2007 in Verona. 

Originating on Kim and Dave Perry’s farm in Harrowsmith, Local Family Farms has been built around small-scale agriculture and community. They specialize in a variety of meats and homemade products including pies, fresh and frozen meals, as well as baked goods made in their on-site kitchen. The store is a short distance from the K&P Trail with a café for trail users which offers snacks, Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream, cold drinks, specialty coffees and sandwiches.

The growth of Local Family Farms was supported by Frontenac Business Services which provided loans and support in the store’s formative years. This aid was essential in expanding the inventory and the refrigeration system, to advance the stores presence. Through continued business advice, networking, and educational resources from Frontenac Business Services, Local Family Farms – Food Less Travelled navigated the market and operational complexities to
situate them where they are today.

Local Family Farms draws customers from larger centres, reinforcing a strong demand for quality, locally sourced products, and friendly service. They recently expanded their morning hours and added new offerings of specialty coffees and breakfast to go to appeal to a potential new clientele.

The journey of Local Family Farms offers insights for business owners: value expert advice, uphold confidence and fairness, and invest with foresight. The continued evolution demonstrates the importance of adaptability, passion, and purpose in the local agricultural sector.
