After seeing King Corn last night at the Jepson Center in Savannah, I am moved to improve the nutritional value of my diet by eating more locally grown produce and locally raised meat.   I am not committed to buying all of our diet nontraditionally; Yet, I will try to make a conscious effort to select local farms over industrialized farms. 

I have been researching ways to eat locally here in Statesboro in Bulloch County.  Admittedly, I thought it was impossible. Really, this entire subject is off the beaten path for me.  I did not even know that the Silver Linings Farm existed, however, I found it on the Local Harvest website. 

Do you strive to eat locally?  How difficult is it?  Where do you shop?  Is it more trouble than it is worth?  I am curious about the whole program as I would love your input.
