Perhaps this isn't fashionable or vintage inspired...but local farmers are a dying breed. Watch:
Just saw this on PBS, Michigan asparagus farmers battling big box stores, the U.S. War on Drugs and Free Trade.
Perhaps you may want to buy local produce?
Even if they are from farms that are a distance away from you, (some people resist buying from local farmers that live to far away, citing fuel emissions and such...a belief that i can't quite understand.)
