Locally-grown spinach by The Environment Report

GLRC's Brian Bull reports on the local spinach farmers that are benefiting from the recent E. coli outbreak. He writes:
Bill Warner owns an organic spinach farm. He sells his crop at local farmers' markets and restaurants in Wisconsin and to some restaurants in Chicago. Warner says he thinks the E. coli incident will steer consumers toward smaller, organic farms like his.

"We just will tell people that in every step of the way we do, we're eating our spinach. We drink the same well water that we water with. So it may get people more back to, 'Y'know we don't want the big conglomerate foods, let's go back to buying from who we know.'"
