Farm to Table

This week, GWG returns to The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan.  Previously, on December 10 and 31, 2014, and January 14, 2015 we reviewed highlights from Pollan’s exploration of industrial agriculture and our corn-based diet.  On February 18, we gained an overview of “Big Organic” and “Little Organic” farming.  On April 22, we followed Pollan as he headed back to Polyface Farm where he spent a week as a field hand and experiences life and work on a small farm.  Today he’s taking his place in the line at “the end of the line” for about 300 chickens, an event repeated six times a month at Polyface.   We’ll wrap this section of the book as Pollan prepares a meal of mostly local and regional ingredients for himself and friends.  Along the way, Pollan provides substantial information in support of knowing the sources of the food we eat and what was fed to the animals we subsequently consume.
