Interweb Cookery: The New Farmers
Before we can cook it, someone has to grow it.
In this documentary-in-the-making by Severine von Tschamer Fleming, meet The Greenhorns, the next generation of America’s organic, small scale-farmers. View the trailer and more information below the jump.
Today’s farmers are battling a slew of problems and issues born of modern life: urban encroachment, GMO’s, peak oil, farm bill issues. and environmental contamination, just to name a few. This is above and beyond the usual farming challenges such as weather, pests, and the vagaries of the marketplace. In my view, anyone who takes up a spade in the name of safe, affordable and sustainable food needs our attention and support!
