  • Locavore Index

The local food movement has been consistently gaining ground as more and more people opt for locally produced meat, veggies and more. From the folks at Strolling of the Heifers, the 2015 Locavore Index is comprised of statistics on each state from the Census of Agriculture, gauging each state’s commitment to consuming locally produced food.

This index is meant to “stimulate efforts across the country to use more local food in homes, restaurants, schools and institutions,” says Orly Munzing, founder and executive director of Strolling of the Heifers, and what it shows is “the various policies at the national and state levels that encourage local food programs are having measurable results.”
