Monsanto’s Harvest of Fear “Monsanto already dominates America’s food chain with its genetically modified seeds. Now it has targeted milk production. Just as frightening as the corporation’s tactics–ruthless legal battles against small farmers–is its decades-long history of toxic contamination.”

A side effect of the farmer surveillance Monsanto practices – if you try taking a nice photograph of a picturesque barn in farm country, you should be prepared to be confronted by farmers who are paranoid about cameras.

On the brighter side of farming check out Straight from the Farm, a beautiful blog featuring an urban farm in Philadelphia.

LTHforum, Chicago’s best food forum now has a whole section devoting to Gardening, Farming and Foraging.

I don’t have ads on this blog, but if I did I’d send you to:

Fred and Friends, with kitchen products like a pan handle shaped like a banana a measuring cup that measures not just in cups and onces, but useful measurements like ‘5 thousand drops of water’ or ‘as many grains of flour as people on the planet’. And what home would be complete without an accessory to add the vision of Mary on your toast?. They have a blog too – the Joy of Fred.

I’d also try to sell you meat candy – lollyphille has maple bacon lollypops.

I’d love to design and ad for this dual aquatic pet chop/seafood place.
