If everybody stopped buying meat and dairy from the grocery store and started buying from local farms it would be awesome. Lucky for me I live in Vermont where it’s normal to do that but I can see how it could be intimidating to do that somewhere that it’s not the norm. Do some research and find your local farms! Support your local economy.
This is a great website to help find local goods.
If you don’t support your local farmers, who will? Eat seasonal as much as possible. Certain things like citrus obviously aren’t available everywhere all year long. But every little bit helps.
