Farm and Garden To Table – Shaping Our Road To Self Sufficiency
One of the biggest reasons we started “Old World Garden Farms” was to simply become more responsible for the food our family consumed on a daily basis.
In addition to the ever-rising cost of fresh food and produce, the simple fact is that almost everything you buy in the grocery store today either contains preservatives, additives – or has been sprayed with who knows what. And of course, if your plan is to just purchase all-organic produce – you might as well take out a loan on your house.
But by growing and preserving and preparing more of our own – we have indeed become more self-sufficient. Our garden’s raised rows now account for the majority of our staple food year round (see: growing a garden for canning).
