It takes a community of actors to grow a healthy food system. CSAs (community shared/supported agriculture) are a wonderful component. By committing to and paying up front for a "share" of the farm's production, you can get access to local organic produce at a great price and help the farmer secure their income for the season....

  “Whenever Possible” It’s a bit of an ambiguous phrase that is showing up a lot recently in our world of local organic food. We use it from time to time too, in phrasing like, “we support local small scale organic farms whenever possible.” We’re realizing though, that it leaves a lot unsaid....

To be sure it was a cold winter, but with a bit of protection from the elements, these sweet greens were able to go dormant until the warm weather of the past few weeks sent them shooting skywards. Capture their energy for yourself! We've got first of the season spring greens at least a month...

Believe it or not, spring will come again someday soon and now is when we start getting ready for it. We’ve done fun things like pouring over...

So what’s the big deal about GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms)? GMOs are organisms that do not occur in nature and cannot be produced through traditional breeding programs. They are instead created through genetic engineering, the splicing of genes. There are outlandish creations like the EnviroPig, which has been modified to better...

We finally did it: Ever since Jeff started the business back in 2008, he has always talked about doing a delivery by canoe. I got roped into that adventure by virtue of owning a canoe. We poured over city maps, looking for potential customers that had properties along the Thames River. It hadn't happened yet. So, suffice to say that I...
