The good thing about insomnia is that it gives me time to catch up on blog posts and small farming websites that I've neglected.
While tooling around, I realized I missed an entire section of the NYT's Magazine devoted to "Food Fighters" earlier this month.
The Food Fighters featured in a slide show include one of my favorite farms to watch: Maverick Farms , an education oriented farm in North Carolina.
I also have a new hero: Farmgirl/filmmaker Severine von Tscharner Fleming. She created Serve Your Country Food, a site devoted to tracking farmers younger than 40, a fast-growing population.
I love the audio that goes with the show. The foodies profiled talk about what they have in their refrigerators.
No surprise that Tom Philpott, of Maverick, has his fridge loaded with farm fresh goodies from his place and from neighboring operations.
I wonder if the food photographer showed up unannounced. I'd be horrified if someone starting taking shots of the innards of my fridge. God only knows what's really back there.
