foodie poll

How do you define "local" food?

  • It must be grown at a farm in my town.
  • I'd like it to come from within an hour's drive.
  • If it's grown in-state, that's fine.
  • If it's from New England, that counts!
  • I'll go with the USDA definition: if it's produced within 400 miles of my house, it's local.
