Kim & Dave Perry - Owners, Local Family Farms

Thanks to Local Family Farms and the Frontenac Community Futures Development Corporation the Frontenac community now has a source for locally-grown meat, vegetables, and ready-made meals.

Kim and Dave Perry’s long-time support for sustainable farming practices and socially responsible food initiatives led them to open Local Family Farms in Verona in 2007. After a successful first year the store’s dedicated clientele wanted even more than locally-grown meat and vegetables so Kim and Dave approached the Frontenac CFDC for help in realizing their made-inf-Frontenac solution.

“Their guidance and financing allowed us to buy the equipment we needed to diversify from meats and vegetables to ready-made frozen entrees,” says Kim. The upgrades have yielded another, unexpected return too. “Demand is growing again for locally-grown raw products,” explains Kim, “with the help of the Frontenac CFDC our business has expanded full circle.
