Today's Knowledge: Michigan's Agriculture

Actually, this is last month's knowledge, but I wanted to revisit in time for Thanksgiving. Michigan's Department of Agriculture head, Don Koivisto, says that Michigan's agriculture industry is the nation's 2nd most diverse. That means that this Thanksgiving, Michiganders should tap its own bounty and buy local.

An October article on Michigan.gov also said that if each Michigan family spent $10 a week on local foods, that would keep $37 MILLION dollars in the state. How about that for food for thought?
