I'm making an effort to have our family eat more local foods. We've made progress eating veggies from our garden and getting fruit from local farmers, along with quite a bit of preserving so we can eat that way year round. (We don't eat exclusively local - I bought grapes today that I'm sure are from somewhere in South America, but Little Man LOVES grapes!)
One area I haven't done any local eating is in the meat department. I generally just buy the loss leaders and stock up. However, I started to have a change of heart when we watched Food, Inc. So today I made the first step in our local meat eating endeavor! I ordered pork from a local hog farmer (like 10 minutes from my house kind of local!). Next Saturday I'll be picking up 10lbs of Pork Chops and 10lbs of Sausage (5lbs Hot/5lbs Regular). I thought the prices were very reasonable. The Sausage was $3/lb and the Pork Chops were $4/lb. He also has Pork Tenderloin and Ribs. Maybe next time I'll be brave and order some of those, too.
