Dark Days Challenge

So, I signed up to do the Dark Days Challenge this winter.

The details for the challenge can be found here.

Having a fall and possibly winter CSA subscription, and having access to year round markets makes it a possibility for us to eat more locally sourced foods than we had been able to find in the past.

We have to establish our own radius, and determine which rules we will use for our participation. I know I will be using 150 miles as our radius, even though 90% of what we get comes from less than 100 miles away.

Our Amish Co-op that supplies our CSA is based near Lancaster PA, which is about 90 miles as the crow flies.

I will also use locally sourced meats, breads, wine, beer, cider and milk that are available near here, but do know that for some of the beers and some of the ciders they may be manufactured locally, but not all ingredients are local.

As more details are known, I will update my post with the complete list of rules.
