I’m writing this while vacationing in a guest house on a friend’s farm in Southern Oregon. Although it will take them a few more years to build up, their goal is to have a property that can sustain them. They currently have llamas, sheep, goats, chicken, and rabbits. They have a fruit tree orchard, a walnut grove, and a large vegetable garden. As the farm matures it will provide them with meat, milk, cheese, eggs, fruit, vegetables, feathers, and wool. They also have a fresh spring on the property that provides the water for the house, trees, and plants. We even found edible mushrooms all over the woods. Next year they plan to get bees so they will have honey and beeswax as well. What’s impressive to me is that my friends know from beginning to end how everything here has been fed and raised. They know their food intimately and completely. While this may be outside the norm or considered extreme, it makes me ponder, how well do I know my food? What’s your relationship to the food you eat? Is it an intimate one?
