“It’s amazing how knowing the story behind your food can make it taste better (Or, if it’s a bad story, worse.). But I also enjoy meeting farmers at the farmers market, and seeing how my food dollars can help build a new food chain in America, one devoted to health at every step: to the health of the planet and animals, the health of my family, and the health of my community. I call shopping and eating this way “voting with your fork.”
–Michael Pollan, The Omivore’s Dilemma
As promised, we’d like to start bringing you some photos of where your Frostville goods come from. Thank you to MeadowSong Farm for sharing some photos with us this week. Bob and Sue Sklarz, owners and operators of MeadowSong in Medina, start their own plants from seed each Spring and supplement what they don’t grow with produce from their Amish neighbor, Atlee Weaver. They do not use pesticides on your produce, and most of their fertilization comes via courtesy of the animals on the farm (the way it should be!).
As we’ve mentioned before, get to know your farmers (they might even personalize some pumpkins for your kids– as seen in the photos)! All of our valued vendors love to talk with you and share their stories & information about their products, and Bob and Sue are no exception! As always, please let us know what questions we can answer for you as well! We want YOU to vote with your fork! 🙂
