Marion Burros has written about northern Vermont's vivid food scene in the New York Times today. Datelined Hardwick, Vt, she highlights Pete's Greens, High Mowing, Jasper Hill, Vermont Soy, and various other farmers and organizations dedicated to creating a thriving food economy. Nice to see farmers getting some good press.
And oh yes (added later), here is Michael Pollan's letter to the next president outlining food policy. It is excellent, and answers even more of our questions. It will appear this coming Sunday in the New York Times Magazine.
