Thought of the Week

“Farmers and ranchers are being told that it is necessary to double the food supply in the
next 30 years in order to feed an anticipated human population of over 9 billion people.  Yet every category of production is being attacked, both through public relation campaigns and lawsuits such as the one filed by Toward Justice.
While local food production and farmers’ markets can feed those who have access to them, every aspect of growing food involves a lot of
expertise, planning, financing, management, marketing and labor.
Attacking every food and fiber product – from almonds to lamb to lettuce
is the height of arrogance and ignorance.”

-Sharon Salisbury O’Toole, The Shepherd magazine, October, 2015
