KCET put together a handy dandy infographic of how you can source your entire Thanksgiving meal locally. They highlight some of our favorite purveyors, icluding Soledad Goats Cheese, green beans from the South Central Farmers, and pasture-raised turkeys from Rainbow Ranch.

Says writer Shauna Nep:

The one glaring omission is the cranberry, which doesn't seem to be grown on a commercial level in California. (Though you don't need a bog to grow your own. Just a potted cranberry shrub and a lot of patience.)

Shucks. We were hoping there'd be another use that kiddie pool we bought this summer.
