Hug Your Farmer: The Future of How We Eat

[Part 1 of 3]

At the heart of the good food movement- local foods, innovation in sustainable and community supported farming- are the seeds of an idea that we are what we eat, that in supporting local farmers we’re supporting our own health and the strength of our communities. This idea is what fuels people like Tom Stearns, owner of High Mowing Organic Seeds in Wolcott, Vermont. Along with other entrepeneurs, like Pete Johnson of Pete’s Green, Tom is forging a new model for economic growth in agriculture, and, as a result, the world’s eyes are fixed on this area.

“Growing vegatables organically is very different than growing them with chemicals,” Tom explains, “and our organic seeds have been selected and bred and developed by us selecting the best plants in the field to thrive under organic conditions.” High Mowing Seeds is quite literally at the root of the growth of the organic food movement in this country.
