Thank YOU for your labor and our food

September 3, 2012

We consumers (i.e. people who eat…hey! that means YOU!) need to stop just for a few moments today to consider the effort that results in food on our table.

A photo essay, culled from visits to our local farms as well as the Internet may help us realize the steps that are needed before we have food on our plate.

    Thank you for this reminder, Beth! This is what we support when we shop and dine where “local growers'” bounty is available. Cafe Cimino Country Inn wants to thank our 22 small family farmers, growers and foragers for providing the fruits of their labor to us so we can share with our guests!!! Thanks for continually featuring our West Virginia growers!

      Labor Day originally was established to celebrate the American worker and provide a day off from work. Farmers know no such holiday. I thought taking a moment to realize that they have a 365-day work calendar is important.

    Great job Beth. That turkey is pretty impressive! But liked all the images.

      The turkeys are raised by Stephanie Pauley and I have ordered my Thanksgiving turkey from her. She raises heritage breeds.

        I may be repeating myself, but last Thanksgiving I was invited to a friend’s for dinner. She buys the supermarket birds and I nearly had to force myself to finish my serving. The difference in taste and mostly texture is awful once you’ve experienced real turkey.

    People generally really have no idea what goes into making their food. Most just except the junk in the supermarket which is their loss. I have visited eight of our local farmer;s markets this summer and multiple area farms. These are some hard working people, and I love their food.
