WTF is Local?

Consult SFR’s buyer’s decision tree

Local isn’t a cult. Local isn’t a contest. You don’t have to do without if you can’t find it in town. You needn’t limit your diet to what you can forage in your backyard or things you can kill with a stick.

Local is an ethic that suggests value and satisfaction are built from trust and authentic relationships. Local is a belief that strong communities are the sum of their parts: personal, political and business relationships. Local isn’t restrictive—local simply adheres to a value judgment based on prioritizing community, quality, reliability, accountability, efficient use of resources and honest need.
