Local grass fed butter vs coconut oil from the other side of the globe? Is local always the best way to go?

I prefer coconut oil for high heat applications like searing meat. I prefer butter for taste though.

One option might be to get something like 23andMe done and figure out where your genes fall, then try to eat according to the heaviest regions that comprise your DNA. Might be false logic, but seems like it would be interesting.

If the price is right and the pigs are humanely raised, I'd go for it. Pigs aren't grass-eaters, I believe they just kinda eat whatever they find; it would probably be pretty tough to find affordable pork that feeds exclusively on forage.
