Are You a Locavore? (2 videos)

  • 1 of 2

Whether you shop at your local farmer’s market, at Whole Foods, or even at an enlightened supermarket, you may be unsure of terms like organic and biodynamic. Come visit these two farms, see how they do it, and hear the farmers tell you what they are all about.

Visit a Successful Organic Farm

This is the Stewart Organic Farm. Alan Stewart will show you how they prepare the soil, grow cover crops, use integrated pest management, and end up with luscious beans, blueberries, and apples.

Then heíll take you to the farmerís market where the produce goes fresh from the farm into your shopping bag.

If this doesnít make you hungry I donít know what will.

Then go to page 2 and visit a biodynamic farm.

What a refreshing video. Having trees (apple) makes this even more valuable.

Today too many farmers have totally destroyed trees around their fields. Soil is seen on roadways because we no longer have ditches by the roadside.

Farmers need entry and exits through fields. Trees dispersed properly keeps soil and water tables in place.

My only concern about organic produce today is where do the original seeds come from? Hybrid corn has been here since the Kennedy Presidency and possibly before.

My grandmother, born 1880's, dried the seeds and used her own every year.

Thanks for the article and video.

my parents grew most of our veggies when I was growing up. I seem to have somehow specialized in berries, raspberries , blackberries and strawberries...I love going out and picking a snack..

I grow most of our fruit and vegetables. So lovely to go into the garden pull out a carrot, give it a quick wash under the tap and eat. Also the joy of picking your own peaches, plums , apples and berries when in season.

I don't have an internet plan that allows many videos to be watched. These farms sound good though.
