Food

Obviously you care about food or you wouldn’t be poking around here. Thank you for caring about food – where it comes from and how it is produced. There are many more folks who don’t have a clue – they have been programmed to think that if it’s in the store it must be ok…And certainly all of those choices are astounding!  But guess what? This programming has to stop! People need to start thinking for themselves. There is plenty of reading and evidence to refute the brainwashing. Ian and I just finished reading Folks This Aint Normal, A Farmer’s Advice for Happier Hens, Healthier People, and a Better World by Joel Salatin. This is excellent reading! Forget his political views – we already know he wouldn’t have joined us at the Obama rally.

Here is another great article I just read in our Local Banquet  magazine. We are definitely ahead in Vermont but there is so much more educating that needs to happen.

And finally, take a moment to read this little ditty by Michael Pollen, Food Rules. You should buy this book, read it, and pass it on to someone you care about.

  1. I am familiar with the book, Food Rules and have found it to be very helpful in navigating the whole arena of food purchasing and consumption! Michael Pollan is not a scientist but a journalist who has made the complex most basic and simple. Thank you for the other suggestions. Now we need to get our schools on board to provide better food choices for our children!

  2. I’ve also read Food Rules and would recommend it! The movie Food, Inc. is excellent also. Educating ourselves on where our food comes from is SO important. A couple of years ago, I wouldn’t have given a second thought about it. I’m so glad we joined the Field Stone CSA last year and looking forward to it again this year :).
