Why Switch to Local?

Small Changes to go a long way


-Our nation's farms are responsible for severe environmental degradation; it is not sustainable
-Large-scale farms in the Midwest deplete water and soil resources much faster than they can regenerate
-This can cause food to lack nutrient content, which may be compensated by unwanted additives


-Crop, razing rotation
-Cover crops
-Off-season soil enrichment
-Biointensive pest management

How This Leads to Local Farms:

-Localization has a slew of environmentally-minded benefits
-Less cost for transport in money and emissions
-Food will be more ripe
-Local species requires less water/fertilizers
