Locally Sourced

Definition:

"Locally sourced" is used to describe or label food products, however, there is no agreed definition for the use of "local." Some may consider vegetables grown within 100 miles to fit the definition, while others may feel that it only includes food produced within a 10-mile radius.

Example of Locally Sourced :
