Ohio State grad student Shoshanah Inwood led a study to determine
opportunities for producers to sell locally.
What she found may make farmers' eyebrows raise: 90 percent of the 100
retailers and restaurants in Inwood's study want to increase their local
food purchases.
"What a tremendous opportunity for local and organic farmers," Inwood said.
