Keep It PC
- Educate consumers on the benefits of buying locally: strong economy, more jobs, tax revenue that supports our infrastructure, trails, parks, transit system, etc.
- Educate consumers on the range of competitive goods and services available in the greater Park City area via the Chamber's online business directory
- Encourage private and public sector organizations to commit to supporting local vendors and suppliers in recognition of the contribution they make to our community and economy
The campaign is being executed through a variety of local advertising mediums in combination with a grassroots element designed to empower local residents to spread the word about buying local.

What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for citizens to directly support farming in their communities. Members purchase a share of a farm's produce for the growing season. These shareholders pay their money upfront and in return typically receive a weekly delivery of what is in season at their local farm. The benefits include reduced transportation costs, better tasting and more nutritious food, and a direct positive social, economic, and ecological impact on communities.
Looking for a local, healthy beef? Summit County Beef is grass-fed beef raised by Blazzard Farms in Kamas, and is processed in Utah,eliminating the long travel distance and unhealthy feedlot conditions usually associated with non-locally raised meat. Consuming grass-fed beef has been shown to provide increased health benefits, including lower fat levels, increased levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, and has been linked to lowering cancer risk. Not only is consuming locally raised,grass-fed beef good for your health, it's good for the economy as well. Studies show that money spent locally generate twice as much income for the local economy. Additionally, buying local beef helps ranchers keep their land in agricultural use, preserving many of our community's agricultural lands.Learn more at http://www.summitcountybeef.org.
