Discussing Michael Pollan's writings about agriculture and our relationship to the things we grow and eat with a friend yesterday evening got me thinking about sustainable agriculture in general and how much the pork chops I smoked for last night's dinner cost in terms of money and petroleum imports in particular.

For folks who may be interested in such things, here are a couple of search engines which specialize in locating purveyors of sustainably produced meats and vegetables within a reasonable distance of your home.

Local Harvest

Eat Well Guide

Entering you zip code and hitting "search" returns information from their databases on sources for pastured meats, free range eggs, organic produce, etc. within a specified radius.

As Joe Bob Briggs used to say: "Check it out."
