Did You Know?

Hve you ever wondered why local produce taste so much better than store-bought?  A typical food item today travels 1,500 miles from farm to table.  Much of it is produced on huge corporate farms using heavy machinery and migrant labor; shipped using refrigerated trucks and railroad cars; and heavily fertilized and sprayed with herbicides and pesticides made from oil and natural gas.

 

Many store-bought fruits and vegetables are bred to survive shipping, handling, and long-term cold storage, rather than for their taste.  They are often picked unripe and treated with chemicals to preserve and then ripen them, or give the appearance of ripening, prior to sale.

 

If everybody grew a little something according to his or her own abilities and tastes, we could significantly reduce our dependence on foreign oil and eat healthier in the process.
