Wise words from an inspired food blog based here in the Twin Cities! I stumbled upon 20food when I was scouting out other MN food blogs and immediately felt a bond with these bloggers. They are a group of 20-something locavores who are committed to eating ethically and sustainably farmed foods. Sound familiar? The contributors post about growing their own foods and then cooking with these home-grown items, but a recent post TOTALLY caught my eye and I decided I had to share it with my own blog audience (friends, family, and the occasional and well-welcomed visitor!).
Grass Fed for Life is about a little trip to Southern Minnesota to see how our some of our food is raised before we consume it. A quick word: if you cannot stand to see how your food is produced (ahem, watch Food, Inc.) then you probably should not be eating it. But this particular post discusses a visit to a successful family farm that raises cows and produces organic, chemical-free dairy products. It's a heartening, informative discussion of the necessity of eating naturally and healthily produced foods. Do check it out.
