The New Face of Agriculture

Epicurious.com  posted their Spring Farm-to-Table Cooking and Eating guide, which includes an interactive ingredient map, Michael Pollan’s Food Rules, and their Top Ten Farm to Table Restaurants

Another feature in the guide is Farmers Making a Difference: eight farms devoted to their crops and their communities. The farmers who run these farms are "no longer content to remain in the background as anonymous food producers. Rather, these modern-day soil soldiers crusade to keep the earth and its people healthy and thriving." 

They reflect "the new face of agriculture"–farmers whose job descriptions have changed as people have become more aware of the source of their food, its nutrition, and sustainable growing practices. 

Check out the eight farms highlighted by Epicurious.com. To find farms where you live, visit LocalHarvest.org. Let me know which ones are your favorites!
