Locally Sourced Produce, Veteran Farmers, and Eco-friendly Presentation
- Ralph Salisbury
The National Restaurant Association has identified healthy, locally sourced, and organic foods as being the “hottest trend” in its 2017 Culinary Forecast, and wrote, “While farm-to-table concepts and locally sourced food still rank as top trends, they are moving toward perennial favorite territory, indicating that they may be on their way to becoming the new normal.” NRA.
Today, Veteran agricultural endeavors have succeeded in bringing high quality and organically grown produce to local markets, while providing a path for combat Veterans to reengage in the larger community. These farming and ranching enterprises are well organized, efficiently run, and successful due to the discipline, work ethic, and resilience that combat Veterans possess.
