Thought it would be interesting to get a sampling of people that generally are pretty involved in their food more than an average person would be.
Sorry KY.. I think we even still have some "u pick it" places around here (just for muscadine grapes).. but no one I know buys direct. You must be blessed if you can do that. But that is part of what I was asking for.. sorry if I missed a category.You left out a major category, Eastshores: Buying direct from a farmer or having a farmer grow stuff specifically for you. I would include U-Pick places in that category.
The nuances of flavor contributed by various forms of wildlife does add an interesting accent, /img/vbsmilies/smilies/laser.gifespecially around rutting season.I try and use a reasonable amount of wild herbs/leafy vegetables, also grow some of my own herbs, but don't otherwise have the opportunity to do much.
Certainly a nicer accent than the nuances of flavour contributed by pesticides. Seriously though, I live in the city but 15 minutes on the train followed by 10 minutes walk brings me to relatively unspoiled forest where collecting wild is absolutely fine.The nuances of flavor contributed by various forms of wildlife does add an interesting accent, /img/vbsmilies/smilies/laser.gifespecially around rutting season.
