If you could buy all your meats and produce from a local farm, why wouldn’t you? Everyone agrees local food is better quality, more nutritious, and it tastes better. The answer nine times out of ten is price. Local food costs too much. Yet those same folks that claim the price is too high somehow find money for satellite TV, soft drinks, new cars, annual trips to Disney and the list goes on. So is it possible that the issue is not about price but about priorities? I choose to make eating quality food a top priority, because what we put into our bodies is pretty important. I can do without those other things.

Looking for local food? Here are a couple websites to help you search: EatWild and Local Harvest.
