As much as you would like to believe that all food comes from family farms, It is just not the case today. The large "Factory Farm" is replacing local small Family farms at alarming rates. The factory farms utilize practices that are not in the best interest of the consumer, but are in the companies interest in the form of profit. To assure profits the factory farm uses excessive amounts of pesticides, genetically modified seeds, or antibiotics and growth hormones.
Large centralized Factory Farms must ship product to a processing and packaging plant then to a distribution point then to the retail site. We wont even mention out of season foods that are shipped from other countries. All of this transportation not only costs money, but it damages the environment.
Factory Farming creates unnecessary pollution, unnecessary oil demands resulting in environmental destruction. We have seen what our demands for oil have done in the recent past to the environment, The more we demand the more damage we can expect.
This site can assist you in locating local Farmers Markets, CSA's and other resources.
