What is “local”? The Food Co-op defines local as products grown or produced in Jefferson, Kitsap, Island, Mason and Clallam Counties.
As organic farms and processors get bought up by large, sometimes multinational, corporations and grow to a scale that departs from the original intentions of the organic movement, food eaters are turning their attention to the farming operations in their own backyards. Cultivate your local palate, learn about local producers in our region, get in on local food conversations, or explore your own “eat local” challenge.
