what price local? (moved from Ontario board)

had a discussion recently with friends about buying "local foods". one friend claimed that he only bought meat from small local farms and he was willing to pay more money to get the "local" meat. i typically like to get steaks from Cumbrae; but, he even thinks that Cumbrae is too commercial. i've tried some of his steaks and they just don't have the same flavour. he says we just have to change our tastes in meat from the marbley, fatty meats to leaner "natural" meats. i tried to explain to him that humans have been trying to fatten up their livestock for millenia.

i question to you guys, are u willing to change/give up certain tastes and pay a premium for "local" foods?
