Dream about being a locavore or an agripreneur if that’s Greek to you check out a Foodie dictionary? Wish you could eat at a restaurant on Main Street Your SA that gets 80% of its ingredients from sources within 15 miles? This book is for youIt’s the story of one town that’s doing what other towns can only dream of doing And if Ben Hewitt’s book goes as big as say a Michael Pollan release then Hardwick Vermont will not be pleased with the ensuing increase of real estate values caused by well off yuppies who are ready to forgo Whole Foods in favor of Whole Hog One by one Hewitt introduces the players a seed seller soy maker dairy farmer cheese artisan pig slaughterer head chef co op food store manager etc You hear their opinions of their jobs and of each other's livelihoods Tension?
