How scary is this?

This food/commerce story from The Times. And what's scary is that while there have been numerous international food scares involving products exported from China and other countries, the recent flurry of scrutiny seems to stem from the pet food recall.

The whole thing makes communal living, with acreage dedicated to sustainable food sources, sound like a really, really good idea... OK, so maybe that's a bit extreme, at least for me. But I do think I will join a co-op...

Interested in doing that? Here's some info:

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs function as co-op farms and provide freshly harvested produce to members, who pay membership fees and sometimes donate labor.

Gravel Knolls Farm, 9424 Cincinnati-Dayton Road, West Chester Township. 513-779-1190; www.gravelknollsfarm.com.

Turner Farm, 7400 Given Road, Indian Hill. 513-561-8482.

Martin Hill Farms, Aberdeen. Pick up weekly box on Sunday at Findlay Market or Hyde Park, Wednesdays in Northside. www.growmaster.com.

I'm with you, Nicci! Sign me up for the co-op! Unfortunately, I thought about doing it WAYYYY too late for this year. Another good reason to support farmers markets!

I've pretty much decided I'm joining a CSA next year. Read enough from Michael Pollan, and it almost convinces you to start your own farm.
