Why Buy Local?
By David Smith August 4, 2012
Why buy local when you can get strawberries from the States;
And margarine from Quebec, and gasoline at high rate;
Grass is greener on the other side of the fence;
Buying from a distance puts local farmers on defence;
We have it all, Answer Niagara’s call
The fruit belt is here, as our farms slowly disappear.
Why buy local? The choice within you
Cultivate our home front and to ourselves be true.
We have it all,
Let’s cultivate the way;
Keep our farms healthy
It’s our food by the way.
