Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Farmers Markets: Transparency is Our Model
Civil Eats - 10/27/2010.
By Stacy Miller – On October 15th, the trade publication The Packer reported on an issue of growing concern for farmers market vendors and shoppers: grocery chains are copy-catting farmers markets by using “farmers market” signs outside of their stores. The Wall Street Journal had previously reported on the issue, including retailers that use the term “farmers market” in their name, like Sprouts Farmers Market and Sunflower Farmers Market.
High saturated fat intake 'damages' sperm
The Independent - 10/27/2010.
By Jane Kirby, PA – Men who eat a lot of saturated fat could be damaging their sperm, new research suggests. Experts at Harvard Medical School in the US found men who consume lots of saturated fat and monounsaturated fat may have fewer sperm. In contrast, those who eat healthier fats – specifically omega 3 and omega 6 – may have healthier sperm that is more active, the study suggests.

Grist - 10/27/2010.
By Gary Nabhan – The Driftless region in southwestern Wisconsin is renowned for its apples, with their intense flavors favored in marketplaces as far away as Detroit. But when I arrived there in late September to search with friends for heirloom apple varieties, we had trouble finding any apples left on the trees at all.
