(We also got a puppy, but that’s beside the the point).

Revs #5: Looking your food in the eye

Join us for a discussion about our “journey” (or whatever!) to living a life where we know where much of our food comes from, and why we’ve decided to live this way with dirt, chickens, and really tasty food.
