Hello! Welcome to the new “Feature” page. Here I share the journey our food takes; from the farm to the kitchen table. In today’s fast paced world of takeout, drive-throughs and meal kits, it is becoming increasingly difficult to relate to what we eat.
Where does our food come from?
How was it grown?
What resources went into raising it?
And why are summer strawberries available all-year round?
There is so much we don’t know about what we eat. We are so used to the convenience of 24/7 fully-stocked grocery shelves that we don’t think about the reason behind it. Or what happens to the produce afterwards.
Food nourishes the body and the soul but somewhere, in the journey to efficiency and convenience, we have lost our connection with what we eat. There is much to discover, and many questions that need answers! And these answers will help us make better choices that are good for us and our planet.
The first step in this long journey of discovery? To get more familiar with our food, and with those who grow it.
Let’s meet our farmers.
