Food production: Local and Global

After reading, it seems, so many of the current books on local, sustainable, and responsible farming, gardening, and eating I have at last been introduced to an author who articulates a nuanced mid-ground between the ideals of the locavore movement and the necessities of global food production!  

JUST FOOD: WHERE LACAVORES GET IT WRONG AND HOW WE CAN TRULY EAT RESPONSIBLY by James E. McWilliams.  Little, Brown 2009.

Half way through it I have already underscored and commented on more pages than pretty much all the other books combined.  More reaction to follow.

  1. Leni, I stumbled across an interesting article about food production a few weeks ago, written by a farmer. I can't seem to paste a link here, but if you Google "The Omnivore's Delusion: Against the Agri-Intellectuals" you should find it. -Anna
