Agriculture Reference
In-Depth Information
What locavores are really trying to do is, in a way, to make
Transylvanians out of us. If we can develop a similar love for
agricultural landscapes and express an interest in how food
is raised, it is thought we will eat better, love our food more,
and become better stewards of our land. For those who
identify with this sentiment, local food might be worth the
higher price. It is, however, a poor reason to force people to
buy local. Fortunately, most locavores are more interested in
persuasion than force, and given the rising interest in farm-
ers' markets, community supported agriculture, and the
like, they have helped us become more conscious about the
foods we eat.
