Description: 

The Local Motive: Our vast, globalized industrial food system has provided for a more diversified diet and a great deal of cheap food.  Lost, however, is the connection between consumers and the
people who produce their food. This program explores six aspects of Vermont’s local food system. Topics include Production, Processing, Distribution, Farm to Institution, The Consumer and
Food Waste.

This episode explores the relationship between the processing of local food and the financial viability of the local food system, both for producers and consumers. Processing increases shelf life, minimizes waste and improves access to market. It is also economically valuable and necessary to serve the demands of current consumers. In order for farmers to be economically viable and feasible in the current market, they need access to processing facilities and processing partners.
