60-70 years ago, where did our food come from? Well, for the most part, a huge percentage of it was local. You had home deliveries of milk and eggs. You had farmers that took their harvests to local grocery stores and the produce was actually consumed locally. Such a novel idea isn't it? Grow food local, sell it to your neighbors and buy your stuff locally too? Change is inevitable, but change isn't always good. Before my time, by several years, in the 40's through probably the 60's, my family, along with everybody else around here got their work done on a Saturday afternoon or into the evening, loaded everybody up, including their stuff to sale, which included cream and eggs and off to town they went to do their weekly shopping. People got haircuts, kids went to the movies, moms did the shopping and dads, well dads did what we do best, we sat on a bench on main street somewhere and talked to other dads we hadn't seen since last Saturday. Stores stayed opened late to get all the business they could and sales were to be had. Every smaller community around the country was like that. Everybody depended on everybody, very few people went hungry because they knew how to grow food and also because their food supply was local. In a lot of aspects it was idealistic, wasn't it? Then everything changed and I mean everything! Things started costing more. People started wanting more and that upset the apple cart, not just in big cities but across rural America as well.
