Walk into your local grocery store. Go to the produce section and look around. Ask yourself: Where does that food come from? The answer: Most is from California, Mexico, and Central America. Now head over to the deli/butcher/meat section. Do you know where and how that cow, pig, or chicken was raised? What it was fed? Who cared for it during its life? Even if you know the answers, are they the right answers? How We Grow is the story of young people who want to fundamentally change American agriculture. In the Roaring Fork Valley on Colorado’s Western Slope, a passionate group of young farmers and ranchers is learning to raise delicious, healthy, sustainable, locally-grown food for their community. With the support of mentors, legislators, educational programs, microfinancing, and, most of all, their community, they are building a healthy food future for all of us.
