Have You Seen....

Have you seen the video 'Food Inc.'? It may make you think a bit about the food you eat. If you're interested in local food, chemical-free food and sustainable growing, you've probably already seen it or heard about it. CBC's 'The Passionate Eye' aired it a few weeks ago and here's a link to it here. We also recommend the books 'Eating Animals' by Jonathon Safran Foer and 'Omnivore's Dilemma' by Michael Pollan. Both can be purchased using the Amazon link on the sidebar. Foer's book was particularly interesting as it documents his search for the best food for his new child. He's not in the food business, and never gave much thought to food until he had a baby to feed. His research is startling and sometimes disgusting. But it's information we feel everyone should know. As Farmer Man says: You vote with your dollars! We can change what's in our stores, how animals are treated and how we take care of the land! If you don't buy a product, it won't be made. Collectively, we have great power!
