Is Your Pet Named After a Food (or Food Critic)?

There is a great short story about two young brothers who named their dog "pasta batman." It was in This American Life's '20 stories in 60 minutes' episode. I highly recommend a listen.

As a Cornell grad I think I speak for many others when I say that the Hot Truck is inferior in so many ways to the true food truck on campus, Louie's Lunch. You can never go wrong with a Tullyburger sub sandwich and a chocolate shake from Louie's. Why wasn't I consulted on this?

Know any small farmers you'd like to see interviewed?

The last time I asked this question I got great responses and, for those of you who responded, we are in the process of interviewing some of the agro-minded folk you suggested.

So, since the last go-round was so successful, I figured I would ask again.

Know a good farmer?

Tell us about your favorite farm guy or gal at your local farmer's market, someone who flies under the radar but may be on the cutting edge of agriculture, or maybe its someone farming an urban plot, greenhouse, or rooftop(s). It could be someone raising tilapia in their farm pond or greenhouse, or seeding and raising oysters and mussels in a bay and sustainably harvesting them. Whether its your local dairyman or dairywoman, veg farmer, or orchardist, we want to know about them so we can track them down and interview them!

Know a farmer we should interview? Tell us!

We are looking for small farms across the country for our running interview column Meet Your Farmers. We use the term "Farmer" in an expansive sense, so let us know about your favorite local vegetable farmer, dairyman, fisherman, beekeeper, etc. and we can dispatch our team to interview them and get their story and some pictures up on the site!
