I'm creating this blog because like many people, I am fed up. I am ready to learn how to take back responsibility for my own food supply. I've already taken some steps in that direction, but this is where I will chart my progress from here on.
Some of my goals are:
- To grow the majority of my food.
- To buy locally, or at least regionally, what I can't or won't grow for myself, and to limit national and international foods to less than a percentage point or two of my total food supply.
- To use only sustainable, organic, and humane methods of food production and to ensure that those I buy from do likewise.
- To eat what's in season and supplement through the winter months with foods I have preserved myself (through canning, freezing, fermenting, root cellaring, etc.).
I don't want to support corporate agriculture and factory farming, so I will be voting with my fork. If everyone did likewise, we could finally take back our food.
