business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Detroit News reports that Michigan farmers have developed a significant business delivering fresh products to local homes over the past few years, which allowed them to build sales and a connection between shoppers and growers.

One example: a farmer who had 24 home delivery clients in 2002 and has 300 today.

The only limit on how this business can grow is the reality that it has more appeal to high income consumers than to middle income or poor shoppers, and Michigan has been having more than its share of economic issues.

Seems like a natural extension of the “eat local” movement. It may not be the best economic environment in which to grow, but this won’t last forever…can it?
