There are a lot of reasons why I like the whole concept of farm-to-table, or farm-to-fork, or sustainable agriculture, or locavore – whatever you want to call it. Although I’m not anywhere near the point where I want to start growing my own food, I do appreciate knowing where the food comes from, knowing that I’m supporting my local economy whenever possible, and I like the idea that there’s a whole new generation of farmers picking up where their grandparents or great-grandparents (figuratively, not necessarily literally!) left off. This interesting article, from the Entrepreneur’s September, 2011 issue explains the benefits of farm-to-table for some local economies in unexpected places.
