I had a field trip today.
Visiting new farms to me, around these North Mississippi hills and bottoms, it is so scary seeing all the row crops full of poison, which we feed to ourselves and livestock. No plant buffer to catch the herbicides and pesticides. Running directly into our watershed.
"The Table will be our snare."
The state just loaned and granted 8 million bucks for more processing facilities. We had only two and now we will have 11. Plenty of cattle farmers not enough pig farmers. This has been a life long dream for me to see this happen. It will allow myself and others to serve LOCAL MEATS.
I'm not able to sell yard eggs to y'all at $4 a dozen. So how much do y'all really care where your food comes from?
I DO! IT MEANS MORE THAN THE COOKING PART!
I've been fortunate enough to have traveled the world. Cooking and farming, foraging ,hunting and fishing. Cooking it for my guests. With the soaring cost of everything. LOCAL is more important than ever. Keep your money in your community... Help someone instead of looking after yourself. Give back. Just thinking of a few things.
