SOURCE LOCAL SUSTAINABLE & ETHICAL FARMS

Today there is soaring demand for local and regional food, and community-supported agriculture is booming.  TGR is excited to help you discover and source local food and goods from sustainable farms in your area.  For travelers, our directory is also a great way to connect with local culture and fresh eats!

There are many positive impacts to the environment when we eat locally grown foods, including conserving energy, supporting farmers, and preserving the natural landscape.  “Farm to Table,” or “Farm to Fork,” is a great practice for connecting with and supporting local community, increasing the nutrient density of your diet, and having a positive sustainable impact.   

We invite you to join the movement to eat + source local!

Food is not just fuel. Food is about family, food is about community, food is about identity. We nourish all those things when we eat well.

There is a lot of cultural wisdom in food. And indeed, that’s how we knew what to eat for all this time. We didn’t have scientists. We didn’t have industry, hawking products at us. We had food culture. Whether it’s the Mediterranean diet, French diet, or the Indian diet–there are so many traditional diets on which people live long, happy lives with very little chronic disease.

In your choices about food, you express what matters to you.

There is organic. When you support organic, you’re supporting food that’s been grown without pesticides, without chemical fertilizers, and usually with more respect for the land.

There’s also local food. The local food movement is one of the most exciting things going on in the food world today. If you’re concerned about climate change, that’s one reason to change the way you eat. Eat closer to home, and eat less processed food, and you will cut down on the carbon footprint of that food choice.

What does it mean to vote with your fork?  Even if you get it right just once a day, you can produce a more sustainable agriculture, a cleaner environment, diminish climate change, and improve the lot of animals. That’s an amazing power that we have, and we all have it.
