High end restaurants and bakeries are starting to let customers know that they source their ingredients locally through compelling stories about the farms they use.

Celebrity chef run places like French Laundry ( and bakeries like Karas Cupcakes( do a great jobs of pinpointing where each of their delicious ingredients come from and the stories of the farms and farmers. Its a great way to let customers know that there is a connection to the food you eat and the farmers that grow them. What if more restaurants felt compelled to do this? It would increase the quality of food and spread awareness about the nutritional value (and deliciousity) or being connected to local food sources.
