Food Miles

Air freightng food overnight just so we can have out of season veg is the worst offender when it comes to the hidden cost of our food, but domestic production, being much larger, causes more damage overall. The best solution is to get food as near as possible to straight from the farmer, preferably grown within 20km of your home. Which is close to what Northern Harvest achieves, so I’m a bit smug.
