    Some people just don't think. This was in the article:

    Another problem: Small Midwestern farmers are increasingly trying to raise a diversity of organic produce beyond corn, oats and soybeans. But that movement faces an uphill battle, Bailey says, when locals who are passionate about high-quality eggs bypass their local farmers.

    "We have a lot of small farmers around here making chickens and eggs available for sale," Bailey says. "My fundamental question is: Why aren't we supporting the regional economy?"


    Does that mean we shouldn't have gardens with tomatoes, cucumbers, beans etc. because we should only buy it to boost the local economy?
