Region views on agriculture
Melissa Gill, Highland | "Yes. I believe our local farmers use less pesticides than our commercial farmers. I don't buy because my husband does all of the cooking."
Yuuai Guzman, Valparaiso | "I don't which one is, but my grandparents were farmers. I have trust in the small farm produced rather than commercial. I still eat commercially grown, but I trust the homegrown more."
Kristy Evans, Portage | "Probably farm grown. I like the organics. I'm just learning about nutrition, and I find that much of the produce is now washed so that helps."
Barbara Waxman, Munster | "I think locally grown tastes better. Our farms and orchards are better. Blueberries, tomatoes and other seasonal fruits and vegetables certainly taste better."
Alison Hanania, Orland Park | "Yes, it didn't have to be shipped so far. It keeps its vitamins and minerals and also supports our local farmers."
Barry Levin, Schererville | "I would hope so. I'm assuming they're growing their produce organically. I think organics are better health-wise."
