In America, we have the luxury of being able to buy any kind of food in season as well as off-season. To boot, there is an incredible amount of waste because of the assumption that there will always be more. This mentality has been created by the mass marketers and now has lent itself to the rationale that we need to genetically modify our food so that we will not run out.
In his best-selling book, Holy Cows & Hog Heaven -The Food Buyer's Guide To Farm Friendly Food, Mr. Salatin empowers readers to learn about how our food is produced, what they need to know and why.
It takes a true organic farmer to really get the point across about the benefits of growing organics and eating organics. Joel Salatin is an organic farmer from Virginia who talks eloquently about the problems he sees not only as an organic farmer but as a consumer of organic foods. Please visit his farm's website, Polyface farms, which is a family owned, multi-generational, pasture-based, beyond organic, local-market farm and informational outreach in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley.
