Did you know that not all local food is created equal?
Although the notion of local food is a good one, you should know that there are distinctions to this type of food. Local food is any food that is raised locally. Local food helps to support the local economy and small acreage producers. Beyond local, however, is food that can be justified as Bi-local food. This distinction describes food, primarily beef, pork and poultry that is both born on the farm and brought to market locally. Bi-local food has a stronger impact on the local economy. Tri-local food is the Holy Grail of all of the local distinctions. Tri-local food is born on the farm, fed exclusively with feed grown on or nearby the farm, and brought to the local market. Tri-local food (such as our Laney Family beef) has the largest impact on the local economy and the least environmental impact of the three types of local food.
