The only thing I might add is, “Turn off the news, plant a garden and make friends with a goat.”
Oh! I forgot to mention – I found some local honey at the grocery last week. It’s from a farm just about 30 miles away, and there’s not a single ingredient mentioned besides “honey”. It’s worth noting that the grocery store is locally-owned, too. They have only two stores, and they stock things like pickled beets and okra from local producers. It never had occurred to me that such differences could exist between locally owned groceries and chains, but they clearly do. No local honey at the Safeway or Kroger!
That brings a big smile to my face. Not only do you help out that beekeeper and that local small business (and get a vastly superior product to boot), but it’s also a nice little act of rebellion against the industrial status quo.
