"Consumers making a choice to buy a loaf of bread made with local flour has a lot of power… It enables the consumer to directly effect their neighbors, whether it’s the farmer that grew the grain, the cleaner that cleaned it, the miller that milled it, the bakers that baked it, the retailer that sold it, the distributor that brings it around… By spending $5 on a loaf of bread, they are effecting their whole neighborhood."
