Fair trade chicken

I have been working on an article about whether local food is too cheap to allow our local growers to thrive. I began to wonder about local fair trade efforts. We want local growers to grow our food right here. We would like our trade with them to be fair - yes? I was particularly interested in chicken, since that had become the article's focus. I found some intriguing news:

  • A call for Domestic Fair Trade: Wholesome Harvest - a coalition of 40 small farms selling their own organic meats. Their motto: "Eat well, save the earth...and the small farms on it."
  • How about a whole town committed to Fair Trade? Check out Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

Come on Lexington, Georgetown, Danville, Berea, central Kentucky. Let's be a Fair Trade region.
