There are two quotes that I love from an article which is nearly ten years old:
Only rich people can afford to eat locally grown, organic food. Have you heard that one before?

The article below focuses on communities in Maine; however, its’ safe to say it reflects a national perspective as well. Click Here to Read The Economic of Organic Food.
