The Organic Episode
This first episode, The Organic Episode, dives into the workings of the organic certification system and food label. We talked with California food lovers, a Weston Price chapter leader, and of course, your very own Uncle Vern to unravel the meaning of the label USDA Certified Organic, for both consumers and food producers. The goal of this episode is to enrich your understanding of what is being supported when you spend your food dollars on organic products.
In episodes 2 and 3, we’ll jump into the world of career food growers and hear a tale of two farmers. Part One: a decades seasoned farmer and organic convert (guess who), and Part Two: an organic-from-inception home gardener gone crazy (eighty-five acres crazy to be exact).
We hope it will be an eye-opening and entertaining series of conversations for you. And as always, in the end, we hope you’ll feel a step closer to the farms and faces producing your food.
