Supporting Small Business in Quarantine

Happy Sunday Afternoon from the Funny Farm!

If you’ve been following along on facebook throughout our COVID-19 quarantine, you know that a) people are scared and stockpiling beef so we’ve been unusually busy and b) Cheese is not doing so well being holed up at home.

It’s a scary time, for sure. People are being laid off – people are scared for their lives and the lives of their family members. The stock market is crashing and burning. We’ve been asked to social distance.

Small businesses are suffering. Small businesses – the backbone of our communities – our local economic engines – need our support. Corporations? They’ll survive this. But small businesses may not.

So, how can we provide our support? Shop small.

Here are some of my favorite places to shop: (note: check back often – I’ll continue to add my faves as I remember/get stuff from them!)
