Dave Rosenbaum: On Pre-locavores in early Fairplay, KY
By Dave Rosenbaum
I was drawn to your article about the lady in Gradyville whom you called a locavore. Well, I'm fairly certain that we didn't have any locavores at Fairplay, although most folks figured that what you did in the sanctity of your own home was your business.
I tried to follow the linked article from The New York Times but kinda got hung up on "egalitarian" and "urban enclave".
At Fairplay everyone grew a big garden and canned vegetables, killed a couple of hogs and brought a turn of corn to Loren Keith's grist mill when they needed some corn meal.
Folks made out pretty well, but would probably have been well served if someone had told them about them locavores. --Dave Rosenbaum
