"People need to know where their food comes from. If you don’t know your farmer, you have no way of knowing what is in your food. It doesn’t matter what label is on it, you don’t know what is in it. From a food security standpoint, local food production is extremely important."

— John & Becky Klimes of Agrarian Harvest in Buhl, Idaho
