The localvores are curious: Could we raise most of our food here in New Hampshire?
A recent study out of the University of New Hampshire suggests we’re a long way from self-sufficiency:
One of the things we were originally asked about is can New Hampshire meet 100% of its food needs through local foods, and there’s a pretty big gap.
That’s Matt Magnusson, co-author of the study.
Currently, we can produce just 6% of what we need. Compared to Maine and Vermont at nearly 40%, we’re lagging far behind.
