    Farms are also contributing more to the local economy by staying local. Some farms won’t make deliveries outside of a certain radius and prefer to have people come to the farm and buy their product (which offers a certain degree of transparency) and also sells product at local farmers markets and to local businesses. A local, self-sustained economy (as self-sustained as possible, I suppose) is one of the ways to be the greenest. Also, feeding cows grass rather than corn helps the health of the product as well as the environment because methane emissions are less to grass-fed cows.
