This publication addresses four issues regarding our food system:
(1) Is it good for the eater?
(2) Is it good for the farmer?
(3) Is it good for the community?
(4) Is it good for the earth?
Each of us carries a piece of the answer for a more sustainable future–a way of living that meets our own needs today while protecting resources for those who will come after us. We have entered a delicious new age in America as a greater number of citizens are demanding fresh farm raised food. Farmers and ranchers are reinventing their farms by supplying locally grown food to their communities.
