American food is in a state of crisis. Health, food costs and our environment are all in jeopardy. A movement to put good food back on the table is emerging. What began 30 years ago with chefs demanding better flavor, has inspired consumers to seek relationships with nearby farmers. This is local food.
This is a great documentary that  supports the efforts of our local growers.  If you haven't seen Ingredients, it's now available on Netflix streaming.  Or you can also pick it up on Amazon.  Please don't forget to visit your local farmers market and support the natural food source in your community.

We are a young family from Canada who has spent the last year converting a bus into a sustainable home in preparation for the most amazing road trip. Nicole (the mom) is an author, and for her next book she will be visiting the best organic farms across North America and interviewing the farmers to find out how to did it, their passions, their failures, and their successes. John (the dad) will be photographing the farms for the book and documenting our journey for Youtube as we travel.
 
The book will be an in-depth sourcebook for beginning organic farmers, and also a showcase of the most amazing farms in North America. It will have hundreds of beautiful photos, and it will give a voice to farmers who have a lot to say about sustainability and organic food. The book is going to be called The Organic Farmer's Sourcebook and will be published by Skyhorse Publishing in spring of 2012.
