Red Lake leaders hope organic farm can feed tribe members

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 14:54:55 UT

BEMIDJI, Minn. (AP) — Leaders of the Red Lake Indian Reservation hope to feed the roughly 5,000 tribal members who live there with fresh, organic produce grown on the northern Minnesota reservation. The tribe has expanded their garden to a 4-acre patch of farmland on the southwestern border of the reservation, Minnesota Public Radio reported. The garden has many vegetables including pepper, kale and tomatoes. The garden is using fish guts from the tribe's walleye processing facility to fertilize the land and help the crops grow. "I heard a lot of stories about traditional uses of fish heads and the waste products of fish," said Sam Strong, the tribe's economic development director. "They would bury it, just right next to the plant.



farmers seek new markets amid 'buy local' trend

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 07:01:00 UT

COOPERSBURG, Pa. (AP) — For Lehigh Valley farmers, the mantra "if you can grow it, you can sell it," is no longer true. Between growing and selling, farmers now have to worry about branding, marketing and muscling out major retailers. In the last 10 years, sales directly from farms to consumers have remained flat, even though the number of markets nationwide has nearly doubled, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department. It's not that people don't want farm-fresh food — quite the contrary. It's that large retailers such as Whole Foods and Wegmans have joined the local-food bandwagon, making it harder for local farmers to compete.

Man leaves corporate job to start food truck

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 17:53:10 UT

ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) — At 3:30 in the afternoon, with the sun shining high in a bright blue late summer sky and ducks gliding placidly across Freshwater Pond in the heart of Thompsonville, Brett Johnson gets to work in his 18-by-8½-foot portable office — his food truck. Soundtracked by the steady hum of a generator, Johnson fills metal containers with shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese before turning to the stove, where he heats up flatbreads with a coating of olive oil and roasted garlic. Johnson, 56, of Ellington, has 30 minutes until the weekly Enfield Farmers Market opens up, and he, like the other vendors setting up their temporary shops on Main Street, hopes the nice weather portends some good foot traffic.



Have a dosa, and 55 recipes for them

Mon, 4 Sep 2017 15:47:26 UT

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) — The almost crepe-like fermented dough is a staple food all across South India, but it remains largely unknown throughout the West. Leda Scheintaub and Nash Patel are hoping to change that. Patel, whose family originates from south India, makes dosas in Brattleboro for the couple's food truck, Dosa Kitchen. He and Scheintaub are attempting to bring dosas to the nation's cultural consciousness with a Dosa Kitchen cookbook. Most American Indian food focuses on northern India, but south Indian food is spicier and lighter. Scheintaub admitted that people will come to the food truck and ask for items like chicken Masala, a north Indian dish, mainly, she said, because that's what they know to order.

What grocery shoppers want: Low prices, one-stop shopping

Wed, 30 Aug 2017 16:17:20 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — Donna Brown visited a Whole Foods for the first time in at least five months with one goal: see how much Amazon had cut prices. She did buy almond milk, yogurt and lunch meat, but doesn't plan to quit her usual grocers, Walmart and HEB, where she says she finds bigger selections and lower prices. "I am a comparison shopper," says Brown, a part-time administrative assistant in Austin, Texas. Amazon made a splash right away as the new owner of Whole Foods, slashing prices Monday on baby kale, avocados and ground beef.



‘Gluten-free water' shows absurdity of trend in labeling what's absent

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 01:29:26 UT

(The Conversation is an independent and nonprofit source of news, analysis and commentary from academic experts.) Brandon McFadden, University of Florida (THE CONVERSATION) The food labeling craze coupled with banner headlines about the dangers of gluten, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and hormones are leading to increasingly absurd results. For example, you can now buy “premium” water that’s not only free of GMOs and gluten but certified kosher and organic. Never mind that not a single drop of water anywhere contains either property or is altered in any way by those designations.



Recipe Lady's legacy lives on in Amesbury

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 19:12:23 UT

AMESBURY, Mass. (AP) — "The Recipe Lady" is gone but she is not forgotten. Having spent 15 years as the director of both the Amesbury and Merrimac housing authorities, Bob Mazzone would often end his newsletters with a recipe from his mother Angelina, whom his tenants knew as "The Recipe Lady." While his mother died at the age of 98 in 2014, Mazzone has cobbled together 131 of her best recipes to make sure her legacy and dishes live on in his self-published "The Recipe Lady Cookbook." "I wanted to do something that was positive in remembrance of my mom," Mazzone said. "My tenants had seen her recipes for years and had treated her like a celebrity when I would bring her to dinners.



Now at Whole Foods: Cheaper milk, 'farm fresh' Amazon Echo

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 18:29:08 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — A half-gallon of milk was 50 cents cheaper at a Whole Foods in New York. Ground beef was down by $2 a pound. And an organic avocado cost a buck less. Amazon kicked off its first day as the owner of Whole Foods by slashing prices, adding its logo on signs and setting up a stand of "farm fresh" Amazon Echo voice-assistant devices by store entrances. It's just the first taste of the moves the e-commerce giant will make at the organic grocer after it completed the $13.7 billion deal on Monday. More changes are coming: The company aims to make Amazon Prime the rewards program at Whole Foods and some Whole Foods products will show up on Amazon's site. The deal could also spur big changes in how people shop for groceries overall.
