Vermont leads the nation in local food production and consumption. Even so, as it currently stands only about 6% of our food is sourced locally. The Vermont Farm to Plate Strategic Plan calls for a goal of 10% local food consumption by 2020. The New England Food Vision seeks to achieve 50% of all food consumption in New England to be sourced locally by mid-century. Episode 1 examines these goals, looking at how Vermont currently eats, the supply and demand challenges, and how much land would be needed to attain long-term goals.
