EAT LOCAL

EAT LOCAL By Tony Sears Eating Local, Farm-to-Table, Farm-to-Fork, Seasonal Menu have all become buzzwords for a movement that not only supports local growers but also provides a healthy and tasty alternative to the corporate, chemical laden, genetically modified food chain for nourishing your family. If you have ever eaten a ripe tomato, plucked straight off the vine, you will no doubt agree that even the best supermarket tomatoes never compare.
