"While the string of labels becomes its own parody, it's indicative of our life in the information age."
Funny you mention the information age, which is growing every day thanks to the ubiquity of smartphones, laptops, and worldwide internet access, something we have all been convinced we need.
I always enjoy when people pat themselves on the back for eating local and then post an Instagram of eating said local food. The Instagram of course posted from a smartphone that was made by foreign child labor, or by adults in such shitty working conditions the companies have to put up nets to keep them from jumping off the roofs. Good times. But hey, eat local! You're saving the world!
Outstanding article, timely written and insightful.Highly recommended reading for all consumers who purchase at both farmers markets and grocery stores.
We need to develop some pesticide that kills only mosquitoes. It is terrible to be killing all the insects in an area.
PeCaaaaaaan Do! Look at me.
Those photos make it look like quite the sausage party.
Yeah im thinking im not going, unless later when the moon arises they are gonna pour the blood over themselves and dance naked in the moonlight.
I mean this is some kind of diluted ritual sacrifice right? So when the civilized camera toters go is there a blood orgy and some incantations.Maybe some pagan ritual sacrifices.?
I mean short of that its just a bunch of odd carnivores having a bar b cue the hard way. The former sounds like a life experience.
Uh yeah, No thanks. I'll take a heaping plate of the cochinillo but I do not want to hear the poor little bastard squealing on his way out. Can Barna and I just show up when dinner's ready?
Where can one buy green peanuts to boil?
Any program that will allow someone to use land that would just sit fallow is a very good idea. Mixon has a residential base that can make selling the goods a no-brainer, they can see it growing, and maybe some of the crop can go to the local food bank and let some locals who don't live in Mixon experience some fresh foods. And the waste will be at a minimum, as most folks just don't care if there is a little "spot" on their lettuce, or cauliflower, or their greens. We just cut it off, or just eat it. Once in the pot, it all looks the same anyway. Good job Mixon, and the man who thought of this project.

Great article. Really nice to see the reality of farm to table.
Well Andy, I hope for your sake & especially your "POST" or the English thereof that you're not eating the "DIRT".
I'm really proud of the work we so. I've never seen another restaurant like us."
Walker guesses he loses
European eel is considered by some to be "critically endangered," while the Japanese species is perhaps in even worse shape.
North American eel harvests have always been far lower than the harvest of foreign species, by magnitudes. Presently the allowable harvests in Maine and Canada combined are under fifteen tons and actual catches about 2/3 of that amount. By contrast the Japanese and Europeans harvested glass eels by the hundreds of tons annually for over a decade.
Deepsea Throat calls the eel fishery "overregulated waste of time and joke." American eel has been reviewded for endangered species status by the U.S. government twice in the last ten years. Both times the agency said the eel population is below historic norms, however it is not in danger of extinction. In its most recent decision, October 2015, the Service cited improved regulation of the fishery as one of the reasons it is not endangered.
Fisherman should participate in the public forums where regulations are made in order to bring their real-world experience to the process. However, Deepsea is mistaken to call eel regulations a "joke." Without the regulations we would either lose the entire fishery or all the fish.

Addendum: man am I glad sothel farm is gone. Little did I know this was not a community garden so much as one strange, anti government man's attempt to start an out door social club. Not so much vegetables..... It was mostly outdoor tv, screaming children, barking dogs, golf balls being hit into my yard, firework shells in the summer. Like living with a public park right next to your yard where there's always a creepy guy using his truck as a boombox for shitty music....all day long
