I was reading the thread about buying animal supplies online and someone had mentioned that it was cheaper than the local Farmers Co-op. It made me think a little. I love to get the best price and a deal. But I have to wonder, what is our obligation to our local community for purchasing things? Many of us want people to come buy meat, eggs, produce, etc. from us even though it may be a little more pricey, because they know us and our farms, so are we obligated to buy from the community hardware vs the BIG BOX STORE, or vs. online etc? I would love to know what you think?
