A Locavore's Journey

A day in the life of a Central Illinois Locavore

Day 3 – Local Milk, and New Use for Local Honey


Today there was limited time to shop, but I was able to pick up some Prairie Farms' milk, which comes from local dairy farms and is processed locally. FYI, this was my first time since starting this journey that I have entered a traditional grocery store/convenience store. The cow's milk was a nice addition to my menu and convenient to secure.

In addition, today, I decided to try using the local honey as a glaze to change up the flavor of the pork chop I had for lunch. As I stated in an earlier blog, honey is a new favorite for me and other members of my family.

To learn more about beekeeping, which can lead to producing local honey, see the following news release:
