Exit 196

Dozens of travelers leave Interstate 40 at Exit 196 everyday, some to visit friends and family, others for fuel, refreshment or lodging. They all have a story to tell and we are here to share a tale or two that we heard at Exit 196.

Last Saturday spring made it’s annual debut. With the new season officially here we asked some local farmers about this year’s growing season and we are happy to report that seedlings for cool weather vegetables such as onions , potatoes, peas, broccoli and cabbage are almost ready for planting and that by early summer fresh produce will be available at Exit 196. Many of our local farmers utilize sustainable agricultural practices and we listened closely as they discussed how through the use of sustainable growing methods they are able to produce food that is healthy for people and animals without harming the environment.

At Exit 196 we are proud of our communities long agricultural heritage and of how working neighborhood farms like the Buffalo Valley Farm continue on in the traditions of our region’s first settlers. We are also proud of how the area’s farmers are working hard to protect the local environment and to produce food that is not only safe and healthy but also tasty and flavorful. We look forward to reaping the benefits of their labor throughout the upcoming growing season and will hope for a bountiful harvest.
