ABC Wednesday – F is for…
… Food Miles at the Farm Shop
A couple of weeks ago I went with Judith and her MIL to the local Farm Shop. It’s within walking distance from our house, but NAH and I had boycotted it a few years back following an argument with the owner over some bad tasting apples. Now the shop’s been taken over by the son and his wife who’ve bought plenty of positive changes to the place.
The choice has grown immensely – local vegetables, including organic ones supplied by a local farm that also does an organic box scheme. A deli to die for, lots of treats, a choice of delicious oils and vinegars to put into refillable bottles – I could go on for a whole lot longer. My eye was drawn to the eggs counter, where it showed the food miles involved in bringing them to the shop. A great way to gently persuade everyone to shop locally.
