I especially like being involved in local foods this time of year.  There is so much bounty to celebrate!  There is nothing better than the taste of a heritage bird, topped with locally sourced sweet potatoes, turnips, greens, fresh pumpkin pies, and even locally sourced beer and wine.  How fortunate we are to have access to this vast array of farm fresh healthy food!  Next week, I'll be attending the Virginia Farm to Table Conference in Weyer's Cave, where producers, buyers and stakeholders from all over the Commonwealth will be gathering to focus on "Health, Nutrition, and Sustainability from the Ground Up".  Our food system in Virginia is really strengthening and growing, thanks to people just like you and me who practice what they preach and bringing the farm to the table.  I hope you will take a few moments over this Thanksgiving holiday to truly think about and give thanks to the hard-working farmers who are responsible for keeping our agricultural land in use and providing us with such an amazing array of local, healthy, sustainably grown food!
