A small piece of the puzzle that is the local foods movement in West Virginia, Beth enjoys visiting farms, markets and restaurants that use local ingredients and sharing them with you. Purchasing local food not only helps the economy of your neighbors, but it provides a higher nutritional content to you because of its freshness. It also reduces carbon use by only requiring a limited amount of transportation to get the food to the consumer. Buy Local!!!
