Find It Locally

I have been trying very hard to eat locally grown foods. I've even have a little container garden in the backyard to grow some of my own food. Eating locally grown food is not only more environmentally friendly, it's cheaper and healthier. The food doesn't need to travel as far to get to you. Sometimes its sold right on the farm or you can even pick your own and local Farmers Markets are a bounty of the freshest (except for home grown ;D ) fruits and veggies you could ask for.

I've have just the website to help you get started enjoying your local fruits and veggies. It's called Eat Well Guide. at http://www.eatwellguide.org/ Using keywords, city and state or zip code it can locate Local Farms, Farmers Markets, Community Supported Farms, Restaurants, Stores and Even Caterers that use locally grown foods. You can even use it to find Grass Raised Beef which is healthier then grain feed beef and more humanly raised and more environmentaly friendly. Thanks to this site I now know where to go here in Long Island to buy Local foods and I wish I had found it sooner because I love going to Farmers Markets.
