    “When asked why locally resourcing is just a hot topic today – “There is an emotional connection to food. The consumer in the past had no idea where the food they were consuming came from or how it was raised or picked. Today this is changing. People are asking questions about food sources. There is a "high" from connecting with food – sharing and having nourishing conversations about food" - Executive Chef Marcus Repp
