    That the bulk of your business needs to be nearby. I have no idea, I just know it's true of some produce, like strawberries.
    Spoils too quickly.
    While stationed overseas we were exposed to irradiated milk in the commissary system. Milk sometimes kept for weeks after opening.
    Saying we are a country of "Immigrants" is an insult to our ancestors.

    I have little doubt it is POSSIBLE to have milk keep for weeks, and to transport it far and wide. I've had canned milk all my life.
    I'm just wondering if the industry as a whole typically ships within a certain radius.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt
