Fascinating article in the New York Times today about how the federal government and big farms are making it extremely difficult for the (growing) local
food movement to succeed.
I, for one, have always been fascinated by the power inherent in the local food movement. Once a community
itself, it creates a kind of local power and independence that is unmatched by anything else.
In my mind, it's tragic to see something that would contribute to more sustainable
living all across America in danger of being squashed.
Have any of you run into bureaucracy that is unique to your small/organic practices? What are the best ways to support local farming?
