"Victual Reality" by Tom Philpott

At the eco-magazine Grist, Tom Philpott has a column series called "Victual Reality," which champions the interests of small farms. We have been corresponding with Tom and reading his work for a couple years now, originally at his own weblog and most recently as a contributor to the online Gristmill (see this funny article about the ribald early days of Chez Panisse and the amusing debate over coffee snobbery prompted by this post). In addition to his writing, Tom farms and cooks at Maverick Farms in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
