A Letter of Thanks to Organic Farmers
Farm Wars - 12/27/2012.
By Danan Whiddon - These days, one of the most important things to be thankful for is access to healthy food. We seldom think of the work that goes into making food - especially when that work is done with little fanfare or support. If you are one of the people doing that work, this letter is for you.

Grist - 12/26/2012.
A few years ago, Rebecca Thistlethwaite and her husband were working 80 hours a week running a large pastured meat and egg operation called TLC Ranch on rented land. The couple had spent six years barely making ends meet. So, the couple decided to sell the farm and throw in the towel. Kind of.

Appropriately, Cornelissen has studied and practiced macrobiotics, which views food as an energetic balance of yin and yang, emphasizing minimal processing, whole foods, and diet in service of overall (macroscopic) health.
