Local Food Sourcing

One thing that Daily Sprawl is focusing on these days is an effort to find our food more locally.

Doing so offers a variety of health benefits as well as reduces the need to transport food over large distances--something that will be nearly cost-prohibitive in a post-peak energy situation.

Here in Montgomery, we've started with the following:

1. Joining a Community Supported Agriculture with Bolling Bee Farms

2. Buying our grains, flour, and the like from Oakview Farms Granary

3. Considering the purchase of our meat products from Boutwell Farms

We also buy local eggs from a family at church.

Daily Sprawl will keep our readers updated on this effort to "go local" in response to the present energy and health challenges facing our world.
