American Food – It’s all Corporate

by John Hamlin 2. April 2009 19:18

I am getting excited that spring is coming, and hopefully soon despite the weather.  For me with spring, Thursday farmers market will start-up and a spring summer weekly shopping routine will begin.  I feel most fortunate to have many local markets to frequent.  This has not always been the case and based on the current issue of Yes Magazine, it seems that the majority of the food produced in the USA is produced by large corporations.  In fact it states that 2% of farms produce 50% of all agricultural products in the USA.

I recommend everyone pick-up this months, Yes Magazine to learn about the state of our food supply chain and support your local farmers market.
