In some ways I have always been a locavore as I have been enjoying local foods as I find them and I was spending time with others who shared my passion of fresh foods and cooking. Several years ago I really got interested in sourcing everything local and then I heard author Barbara Kingsolver on the radio speaking about her latest book, Animal Vegetable Miracle. I read the book and decided that I couldn’t be passive about my local food any longer.
The other major decision to pursue this came when we decided to start a family and I really wanted to know where our food was going to come from and specifically, what was IN it. And that’s when all this started.
Hopefully you will find some useful information here to help you start buying more local food…it’s not as hard as people think it is.
