Farm Fresh Food (Aired on January 24 & 25, 2015)
RadioRotary interviews Tessa Edick, author of Hudson Valley Food and Farming: Why Didn’t Anyone Ever Tell Me That?, an introduction to the Local foods in the RadioRotary listening area, filled with photographs of local farms. Ms. Edick started the FarmOn! Foundation to promote dining on local foods at home and in restaurants. Among the local products discussed are the dairy products produced by the farm cooperative Hudson Valley Fresh and also raw milk from Ronnybrook Farm. Too many people swap convenience for nutrition. Locavores—people who get 70% of their food from local sources—not only eat healthier, but also support the local farming economy.
