Sep 23 2013

Farm markets

Did you know that the average American meal travels for about 1,500 miles before it arrives on your plate? There are a lot of reasons this is not ideal.

Aug 26 2013

Organic farmers market

Local, natural, free range, organic, fair trade, all these words get thrown around so often that it can be easy to forget about what they truly mean. Buying and eating local means to seek out food that is grown in your community.

This, and whaling and hunting dolphins or even walruses, has been done around the world since long before the written word.
