So today there was an article on the news about how Nova Scotians aren’t eating “local”. In fact, the article goes on to say that only about 13% of the food most Nova Scotians eat is locally produced. Yikes. Really? I mean…really?
I like a good pineapple as much as the next person but when there is a choice out there….USA carrots or Annapolis Valley carrots…choose the ones closer to you. Even if we ate local 70 to 80% of the time it could make a huge impact!
The Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture launched a new website promoting local Nova Scotia farmers. Meet Your Farmer Check it out when you get a chance!
