Unfortunately, many local food lovers have difficulty finding info on where to obtain these foods. Many find themselves online each day seeking the truth about certain foods and we’ve stumbled upon a site that should help in your venture to discover news and updates about fresh food.

The internet would be most people’s first answer and by definition they’d be correct. But more specifically, is there a site that presents the subject of agriculture and fresh food in a way that entices and educates both farmers and fresh food enthusiasts? Here’s where Agrilicious comes in.
“Your Go-To Source for All Things Local Food” is stated boldly on the About section of Agrilicious.org and the site definitely lives up to its word. Agrilicious is a company based out of Bothell, Washington, located 20 miles northeast of Seattle. The company may be based out of Washington but Agrilicious spreads a positive message about agriculture, food knowledge and preparation that touches visitors from across the world.
