A little about me: I grew up in the Northwest corner of Connecticut, and a hilltown in Massachusetts. I went to school to be an educator, realized teaching wasn’t my cup of tea, but luckily that’s not the only place people can learn!
I love cooking and eating, and I especially enjoy fresh produce and meats, and knowing where said products came from (yes, specifically the farms they were grown at, and the conditions they were grown in — specifically with concerns to the use of pesticides, antibiotics, fertilizers and GMOs). I care about the environment, and I care about what I consume.
I try to eat as locally as possible (without driving myself crazy about it, I do enjoy lemons and salt, neither of which I can find locally produced in or near Amherst, MA), and I find that this also means what I eat changes with the seasons (thank you winter farmer’s markets for making it possible to get local produce in the winter).
