Welcome to the Finger Lakes! Our theme song:

In a town this size, there's no place to hide
Everywhere you go, you meet someone you know...
In a smokey bar, in the backseat of your car
In your own little house, someone's sure to find you out
What you do and what you think
What you eat and what you drink...

Where our food actually comes from

Family farm-raised Ronald Baily explains why he doesn't care where his food comes from:
One of the great glories of modern life is the enormous elaboration of the division of labor and how the efficiencies gained from that division makes people much wealthier than they could otherwise be. Since we all don't have to stitch our own clothes, bake our own bread, compound our own medicines, or even cook our own meals, we are all much better off.
Baily's 2002 post constitutes the official South of 5 and 20 position on  the "local foods" dogma so popular here in the Finger Lakes.
