Food for thought….(Cloned or Grown, The Choice is Yours)

Please ask yourself… is it possible to be responsible without thinking about food?….. Done thinking? Here’s what I think: Food is the most important part of the human existence. Social sustainability and, more importantly, “responsibility” is not a feel good mechanism. It is a conscious choice in the realm of morality. Ethics, the most common and basic College course for students, is the most forgotten topic when it comes to the world of competing contracts and short-term profit. To be responsible, it is vitally important to recognize and research the true costs of the industrialization of food. Unless you know…

Organic Police Forces in the Home…

This gives me a sense of pride & achievement. All of those years of restricting & policing have seemed to finally pay off… or have they? For some reason my heart still sinks… Have I created a mini “ORGANIC” police kid?? Listening to my daughter hand out criticisms, it doesn’t feel right . . . her words really sting. Whether she is using “constructive” criticism or…

Why all values are not created equal… the basics of Single Origin

The key to understanding the value of single origin food is in understanding transparency, and I’m not talking about simply knowing the country location, as that provides as little benefit as knowing the color of your food packaging. No, to understand transparency, and thus the value of single origin, I invite you to take a quick trip with me back in-time to take a look at how the food industry used to work: 100 years ago, not even a minute in terms of how long we’ve been living on this planet, the food business was built on some very basic…
