The New York Times Has A Crush On The Berkshires!

According to the New York Times the Berkshires are the epicenter of the local food movement! Check out the article here: http://travel.nytimes.com/2010/08/22/travel/22journeys.html
I love to get food locally because local means it’s fresh.  Buying locally grown food means I’m supporting my neighbors, not some big corporation, and that my food is fossil fuel free (or close to it) and it just tastes better. I get my eggs from a farmer who lives down the road from my parents. The chickens have a huge barn and field and the farmer is very happy to answer all of my chicken related questions! I only buy local organic meat and dairy. It’s a great feeling knowing where my food comes from. Where do you get local food and how does it compare to chain grocery store stuff?
