So we made it to Three Rivers Farm and came across two fruiting trees. One a asian cherry plum and another called Aronia Berry. Perfect for a Locavore episode.

Two books worth reading as well are Sarah Elton's - Locavore and Douglas Gayeton's - Local

Jessica Prentice created the term Locavore in 2005. According to her, the term refers to, “A person who bases their diet on foods that are grown or produced in the geographic region where they live, are in touch with the seasonality of their food systems, and seek to cultivate relationships with local producers and processors. Locavores also have some kind of hands on interaction with their food (cooking, gardens, baking, fermenting) either domestically or professionally.” Jessica is part of a movement of people across the United States who are committed to relocalizing their food system. She values the relationships she shares with her food producers, knowing that face certification is as important as other forms of labeling when making decisions about where to buy her food.
