where it comes from
Posted on October 31 2011
Do you know?
No, not babies.
The milk in your fridge.
What does that matter you say? Well, my dad hauls milk for a local dairy near the town where my kids go to school. And he hauls it to Prairie Farms in the town where I do all of my shopping. So when I buy milk, I buy Prairie Farms milk if they have it. And not all the stores have it.
Not Sam's Club. It's called Member's Mark and it comes from Harvard IL.
But Target, yeah, Peoria's Target sells it straight from Peoria:)
You wanna know how I know?
I found this website:
Oh yeah, I know I'm a dork. I probably wouldn't have ever really cared except for my dad.
That's him at the beach with Taylor, my niece.
He is the best. dad. ever.
You might not ever think about where your groceries come from, where your meat comes from and your veggies too. But I think it is important to be aware. Just aware, not crazy. Just like the whole craze on organic foods. Not always sure that it's the better choice (my opinion). I still buy the strawberry milk but it comes from Indiana. I grow my own tomatoes and peppers, but any other veggies I buy from the Red Barn down the road or at the Farmer's Market. Of course in the winter, I'm subject to the grocery store. But I still think veggies and fruit are better (organic or not) than junk food.
I just think that it's great to support the local families. And if I can, I will. That's why I love handmade things so much. Especially things made here. Especially when I know the person.
Ok, I'll get down from my little soapbox!
Have a terrific Monday! Thanks for the feed back last week too! I love hearing from everyone:)
