While I do buy as much food produced in and near my town as I possibly can, because it tastes better, I recognize that it is a rich man's luxury. The simple fact of the matter is that if all food in the world were grown with low yield heirloom varieties on organic farms, with meat and dairy produced from free range animals, the bulk of the world's population would starve. Modern high intensity agricultural methods are what makes it so that in today's world, the only famines are man made by war & conflict which disrupt transportation systems, not famines because the world produces too little food to feed everyone.
