Building a Healthy Tioga

 Dr. Alan Perestam and Christine Wilson of Perestam Chiropractic, and Paul and Laura Sage of Sage Solution sat down to discuss how Tioga County consumers can more conveniently know what healthy foods local farmers have to offer. The group conceived a website for presenting such information in an organized way.

The website, identifies farmers in Tioga County and their products, lists local farmers’ markets and their locations, describes upcoming events, gives tips on ways to stay healthy, and offers much more information on the benefits of buying healthy food products locally.

The group’s mission is to increase support for the local farming community and to also make Tioga County more sustainable by increasing the amount of food produced and bought locally. Not only will our hard-working farmers benefit but also citizens will have the opportunity to more easily develop a healthier, eco-friendly life style.
