Who GROWS Your Food?

Worldwide attention is on small scale, sustainable, organic farms and young, beginning farmers- there must be a reason. 

Could it be that a growing number of people are questioning who grows their food? 
Asking how is it grown?  What has been added to it?  
Is it safe to eat?  
And what exactly is this stuff?

The answer yes.

More people are turning to farmers markets to gather fresh vegetables, milk, eggs and meat.
More people are joining a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).
More people are deciding what is right for them.

A return to real food and real farmers is a growing reality.

So... who grows your food?
