The path from the plant or animal in a field to the vegetable or meat on our dinner plate has become more complex as modern farming has evolved to address the contemporary food marketplace and economic markets.
It's amazing how we can get perfect oranges in the middle of a snow storm in the winter while enjoying fresh and local corn during the season, a privilege of the industrial food complex. However not all places are this way and the prevalence of food deserts in some of our largest cities highlight issues with the production, access, and consumption of food as well as equity in the food chain.
This theme follows research that was done on food hubs and new models for the production, processing, distribution, and consumption of food in a world of mega farms, multi food conglomerates, and local farmers markets.
This website is relatively new and some of the articles are not yet posted. Please mind the dust as I transition content and projects over.
