Thank You

Local food production can best be thought of in concentric circles that start with growing food at home... then food grown in your community... then your state... then region... then country.

People who 'eat local' are referred to as 'locavores'. The term was coined by Jessica Prentice from the San Francisco Bay Area. She used the word during World Environment Day in 2005 to describe and promote the practice of eating food grown within a 100 mile radius of where you live.

Eating local has gained such momentum that the New Oxford American Dictionary chose 'Locavore' as its word of the year in 2007.
Thank you for eating local.
Thank you for providing local food.
