Have an intention of putting one dish on your Thanksgiving table that is made of ingredients you bought directly from a local farmer. Maybe some goat cheese used as a spread or in the salad or pastured eggs used in the pumpkin pie. When you are ready to give thanks for the meal, you will have a direct connection to where the food came from. If you saw the goat, met the farmer and put the money for his product in his hand, there is a relationship. One that can extend to the sun, rain and soil that fed the goat that made the cheese. Or all of the above. Food that evokes these images, these feelings of gratitude, this knowledge of the source is truly worth a blessing. Not sure where your local farmers reside? Two excellent web sites for finding local food are Local Harvest and Eat Wild.
