What did you have for lunch today? Do you know where it came from? How far did it travel to make it to your plate?
According to Steven Bailey, Farm Director at Homestead Manor in Thompson’s Station, our food travels an average of 1500 miles (and several days—or sometimes even weeks) before it’s prepared and served to us. And to make matters worse, most of us don’t have a clue as to where our meal’s “journey” began.
