• The PPJ Gazette
The definition of “local” or “regional” has for a long time been flexible and defined differently depending on the person in question. In 2008 Congress passed H.R.2419 which amended the “Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act”. In the amendment “locally” and “regionally” are grouped together and are defined as:
(I) the locality or region in which the final product is marketed, so that the total distance that the product is transported is less than 400 miles from the origin of the product: or(II) the state in which the product is produced.
