Rick Bayless: the celebrity chef who supports local farms 

 How can we support local farms?

Frequent farmers markets...“That’s the best support you can do,” says Rick. Consider this: food in the US tends to have traveled hundreds of miles from its point of origin to your plate. Think of all that packaging and the fossil fuels used in transport, plus the conventional agriculture methods used in production. Food at farmers markets tends to have traveled shorter distances and has been grown using environmentally friendly methods.

Participate in CSAs...In a CSA, farms allow consumers to buy shares in exchange for select produce every week. It gives the farms a consistent revenue stream, instead of having to depend on farmers markets. “It also forces you as the consumer to get to know ingredients that you might not buy at a farmers market,” says Rick. “So you get to have some new experiences, and it gives the farm the opportunity to count on you on a long-term basis.”
