Great website and thanks for the good work you do. We help share the “story” of farming, food, great food and good people.
Keep up the great work too.
How can we work together to make the desired changes occur in todays food choices?
Good question Rod. I think folks like us are constantly asking that question. Perhaps initiatives like the National Good Food Network are our answer.
Hello Erin and David,
I left a message under children’s books about the possibility of you reviewing our titles–we’re small, new, and are very excited about our “Agri-Culture Books for Children” series. The web site is http://www.RadiantHen.com, and I’d be happy to send you review copies if you’re interested.
Love your site. Reading Diet for a small planet 28 years ago changed my life. For a long time advocate like me, it is great to see the renewed interest in these issues. San Francisco is declaring Mondays as meat free to call attention to the benefits on vegetarian meals, so there is hope that more and more people will recognize the issues and change their habits. I’m going to Europe in May and I hope to see more local food options there.
i finally made it here. it looks great. wonderful book choices. i can’t wait to look at some of the kids books. dana has given up meat and dairy and is only doing organic right now, so any tips, let me know…love the site. good job guys.
This is really a great site. Thank you so much!
Fantastic site! I have been looking for a good, curated collection of current health/foodways books and am very thankful you take time to do this for the world. I look forward to future posts!
you should carry the book ” A Natural Year ” by Grace Firth
Read a blog about this site for my library science class – awesome website! Given the popularity of Skinny Bitch, was wondering why it’s not on your site?
Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the comment Annie! We try not to focus on diet books or cookbooks, which is why you won’t find anything like Skinny Bitch on our site. (But I do have an equally difficult time resisting to buy cookbooks as I do books about sustainable agriculture–there’s so much available right now.) Good luck with library school!
This is a great website! Like you, I was also inspired by Michael Pollan after reading, “In Defense of Food” and it started me down the path of getting my food locally and thinking about sustainability. I would also recommend reading Barbara Kingsolver’s “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle” and “Eating Animals” by Jonathan Safran Foer. After reading, “Eating Animals,” I researched pastured animal ranchers and know how the animals lived and died that I eat. I hope that with websites like yours, more people become aware of the need for sustainable practices and think about voting with their forks.
Thank you so very much for all that you do! Your website has added so much to my life and I’m so very grateful!
What a treasure of literature reviews! Here is another book which might interest you:
again, i have to tell you how much i appreciate your site.
today i shared my current read (goat song) on my blog and accredited your site for leading me to such a wonderful book.
just thought i should let you know
all the best,
Thanks Liz! Always happy to hear that our site is helpful!
Fantastic website. I can’t wait to explore it in its entirety. Just had to write a word of praise before going further.
Where have you gone? Why aren’t you posting anymore. I check in every day but no change? I miss your updates alot. Are you ever coming back? Please do.
We’re back! Sorry for the absence. Check out our most recent post to see where we’ve been.
If you’re looking for a new book to review – here’s one that might interest you: http://www.saanichorganics.com/?page_id=774 It’s published by Touchwood Press, also available through Amazon. It’s very readable, partly biographical, and really does give the highs and lows and nitty gritty of veggie farming – with the added twist that it’s that rare thing – a book about Canadian farming! Everything in it definitely still applies in the US, don’t worry.
