Many of us pride over imported foods for it being luxurious foods but hey, local foods can be too pending on preparation methods.
Here are my 5 reasons to love local foods:
Support local farmer's work: Keeping a farm at this era is tough. Not only crops are affected by the climate change, farm nowadays need to keep up with the challenge of retaining labour to keep the farm running. Do you know: more money goes back to the producer, instead of the middle man?
Cheaper: Local food maybe cheaper, without the expenses of paying the farmer lesser, of what they should be getting
Fresher foods: The local foods can be harvested when it is needed without the need to be transported to the market
Save the earth -lesser carbon footprint from transportation
Keeping our farmland: Strong demand for local foods helps keeping our farm from being turned into commercialized area
It is important that we learn to diversify our food sources. Let's keep local food as part of our diet!
