The Power of a Food Budget in the Local Economy

Ever wonder where your money goes? Does it seem to fly right out the window? Well, sometimes it really does. Money is the mechanism that drives so much of life. It determines where we live, how we travel and communicate, even what and how we eat. Every dollar in our pocket wields such power, but just how conscious are we of how we use this might? Come listen to local economist Sarah Haden discuss some common spending misconceptions and how surprisingly powerful our own food budgets really are.

The Pastured Chicken: Outstanding in Its Field

Pete Thompson from Burnt Valley Farm discusses pastured chicken:  what does “pastured” mean, the wonderful health benefits of clean meats, how it’s done (from chick to freezer),  understanding sustainable farming (why pastures love chickens!).
