Agriculture Today: Sustainable Growth
by Shannon Dade
In the United States today, increased concern about the nutritional, economic, and environmental impact of large-scale commercial farming has led many Americans to place a greater importance on locally grown food. These concerns are especially relevant in Wayne County, which is home to a number of small farms and organic producers. Many Wooster residents have joined together to support these farms and provide local, sustainably produced food to the community. Led by the efforts of Local Roots Market & Cafe, the local food movement is thriving in Wooster.
