Food sustains us in the obvious way and in a much deeper way. When food is grown, harvested and prepared with love and dedication, the positive spirit of that food is felt by those who eat it. A grandmother’s best recipe is unforgettable because she brings generations of care to her cooking and you can really feel that goodness.
It is so utterly important to know where your food comes from these days, by whom and how it is prepared. Being an informed consumer is powerful, enabling you to choose foods that are honorable. The best part of our job is when we are out in the fields, not caring about getting our shoes dirty and being with the farmer that many of us may not consider when we sit down to eat each day. Good food starts with a seed. Farmers are always so touched and delighted to have a visit and proud to have their picture taken.
In this post, I am going to share my recent day at the rice harvest.
