Grocery bills for most Americans have gone up in the past month. Commodities, the raw units sold by farmers, have shot up in price due to increased demand. Usually, greater demand is good news for producers but bad weather in Missouri has met increased demand with a smaller supply. A website from University of Missouri Extension (MU Extension) has an interactive map of farms in Missouri that offer direct buying. Learn more from KOMU 8 https://bit.ly/34iREuT
