"The local heritage-based food movement represents everything that is good and noble about farming and food culture. It is about decentralized farms. Pastoral livestock systems. Symbiotic multi-speciation. Companion planting. Earthworms. It is about a community-appropriate techniques and scale. Aesthetically and aromatically sensual romantic farming. Re-embedding the butcher, baker, and candlestick maker in the village. And ultimately about health-giving food grown more productively on less land than industrial models." (Joel Salatin introduction to The Raw Milk Revolution by David Gumpert).

  1. Thanks for posting this great quotation by Joel Salatin. However quixotic or idealistic that it may sound, it's a lifestyle we would do well to aspire to from both a human and economic perspective.
