ERIE COUNTY, OH – Support Your Regional Food Economy

April 5, 2010

Do you worry about the economy? It all can be overwhelming at times, but there is plenty to look forward to if your buying local. Listen and learn how you can invest in the region with your food dollars!

Read a new study from the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture that “considers the potential statewide and regional economic values that might accumulate to farmers and regional economies if there was an increase in the production of 28 types of fresh fruits and vegetables for local consumption. The states studied were Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.” The study goes on to show that the agricultural job market would increase by five (5) times if production shifted from grain to fruit and vegetable farming.
