Everything You Need to Know About the Farm Bill

Okay, maybe that's slight hyperbole, but Dan Barber (friend, chef, and creative director of Blue Hill at Stone Barns) hits all the right points in "Amber Fields of Bland", his op-ed in today's New York Times. As you probably know if you've found yourself here, the Farm Bill is up for renegotiation this year and so there's lots of heated debate about how the Bill could actually (imagine this!) promote healthy farms and healthy food. As a chef, Dan's got a particularly interesting perspective. (It doesn't hurt that he's a sharp writer, too). --Anna
