A Quote by Michael Pollan on food, food supply, local produce, polyface farm, and joel salatin

In Joel’s view, that reformation begins with people going o the trouble and expense of buying directly from farmers they know – “relationship marketing,” as he calls it.  He believes the only meaningful guarantee of integrity is when buyers and sellers can look one another in the eye, something few of us ever take the trouble to do.  “Don’t you find it odd that people will put more work into choosing their mechanic or house contractor than they will into choosing the person who grows their food?”
