It’s easy to get caught up in the idea that a model sustainable farm looks like an intensive six-acre market garden, with little to no inputs and mainly producing vegetables. The notion of a sixty-acre grazing rotation comprised of woodlands and meadows is not what first comes to mind. I know I can get caught up in this image, especially since that is how I have shaped my education and my farming experiences.

There has been a renewed interest in home gardening and food preservation this summer. Growing and preserving your own food lets you enjoy delicious, locally grown fruits and vegetables throughout the year. Even if you do not have time or land to grow your own food, local farmers offer a wide variety of high-quality vegetables and fruit at farm stores, roadside stands, farmers markets, and pick-your-own operations. Ask your local farmer about buying a larger quantity of vegetables or fruit to meet your home food preservation needs and desires.
