I have two favorite local food experiences. 1) farm eggs 2)spring spinach. My youngest daughter is always on the lookout for "farm eggs" she has them for breakfast and tells me that they taste so good that they don't even need ketchup. Spring spinach is something we pick up at Dog River Farm on our way to softball practice every spring. It makes us all feel so good to have green food in our lives again after the long winter, and like softball beckons in spring.

Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. - Barry Lopez
Eating locally food is better for a whole heap of reasons, but it's not always easy. Sharing stories helps us build community, and gives us the chance to learn how to incorporate local food into our lives.
