Well I don't think I'll follow the "elements of a good story here" but Hereis a inspiring local food story:
At Metta Earth in Lincoln Vermont they have a huge garden and animals too. They try to eat as locally as possible. And before a meal everything on the menu is described And you know exactly where it came from. It feels very heartwarming and satisfying in many ways to know that your friends have worked from the very seed, and from the soil of their home to bring food good to you.
