Roving Butchers: An Edible Minute http://nhpr.org/post/roving-butchers-edible-minute <div class="transcript"><p>Maybe it’s all the knives, or the blood. But there’s something a little eerie about a slaughterhouse on wheels.</p><p></p><p>If you raise chickens, or lamb, or hunt deer for food, you might need the service of a good roving butcher. Like Ray Garcia of Cabin View Farms in Littleton. Solo, he can process about 200 chickens a day in a home built rolling abattoir:</p> Fri, 21 May 2010 04:00:00 +0000 Sean Hurley 26037 at http://nhpr.org Food Safety http://nhpr.org/post/food-safety <p>Recent food scares from lettuce, spinach and peanut butter show that we are far away from keeping out food safe.

For a lot of people, the economy forced them to take a second look at how they spend their food dollar -- whether that meant going to restaurants less or changing what they buy at the store.</p><p>Through the Working It Out web site, NHPR&rsquo;s Jon Greenberg came across a woman who found herself headed towards a total food makeover.</p></div><div class="transcript"><p>SFX &ndash; dogs barking</p> Thu, 20 May 2010 04:00:00 +0000 Jon Greenberg 637 at http://nhpr.org Modern Gleaners: An Edible Minute http://nhpr.org/post/modern-gleaners-edible-minute-0 <div class="transcript"><p>When the farmer shuts down his combine, there’s nothing left but a stubbled plain. You might think the harvesting is done. But that’s when the gleaners appear - to begin the second harvest.</p><p></p></div><div class="transcript"><p>Like the Robin Hoods of produce, the gleaners take from the rich soil, and give to the poor. But the gleaners aren’t vegetable pirates. They work with and alongside the farmers:</p><blockquote><p>You gotta carry buckets with you through the fields, picking up small things. You’re constantly bent over on your knees for the whole day.</p> Thu, 20 May 2010 04:00:00 +0000 Sean Hurley 26034 at http://nhpr.org Local Farmers, Grocers Clash Over Food Safety http://nhpr.org/post/local-farmers-grocers-clash-over-food-safety <div class="transcript"><p>Major grocery chains in the region have jumped in on the buy local movement.<br />They&rsquo;ve been finding local suppliers for many of their fruits and vegetables.<br />And while that can mean increased sales for small farmers, it&rsquo;s coming at a cost.<br />The retailers are requiring small farms to get certified as safe growers by the USDA.<br />To consumers alarmed by e.coli scares, it sounds like a great idea.

If we&rsquo;re eating right, that leads back to a farmer.</p><p>Today the average age of the American farmer is 57 years-old. In the last 5 years, 35 percent of farmers turned 75 years or older. Last year, the country lost 10 percent of its dairy farmers. On top of the troubling demographics, kids growing up in rural America are less likely to join the agriculture business.</p> Thu, 20 May 2010 04:00:00 +0000 Virginia Prescott 641 at http://nhpr.org Back To The Land, Version 2.0 The Edible Edition of Here's What's Awesome http://nhpr.org/post/edible-edition-heres-whats-awesome <p>Food is something we share over a table, but in the virtual world, food bloggers are sharing recipes, reviews and culinary tips across the web.</p><p>NHPR&rsquo;s Webmaster and <i>Word of Mouth</i> Internet Sherpa <a href="http://www.nhpr.org/user/241" target="_blank"><u><font color="#0000ff">Brady Carlson</font></u></a> has been checking out New Hampshire&rsquo;s crop of food blogs and is here to share some of his favorites.</p><p><b>An Awesome Choice of Food Blogs:</b></p> Thu, 20 May 2010 04:00:00 +0000 Virginia Prescott 642 at http://nhpr.org The Edible Edition of Here's What's Awesome More Than a Bag: The Complicated Supply Chain of Mozzarella Cheese http://nhpr.org/post/more-bag-complicated-supply-chain-mozzarella-cheese <div class="transcript"><p>All this week New Hampshire Public Radio is following some of the most commonly eaten foods back to their source.</p><p>So far, we&rsquo;ve heard about potatoes, pasta and the source of ground beef.</p><p>In our next installment NHPR&rsquo;s Dan Gorenstein looks at the cheese that melts so good- mozzarella.</p></div><div class="transcript"><p>Ok, so you have a few friends over, like NHPR reporter Josh Rogers did a few weeks back.</p><p>Have a few drinks.</p><p>Do a little cooking.</p> Thu, 20 May 2010 04:00:00 +0000 644 at http://nhpr.org Localism in New Hampshire http://nhpr.org/post/localism-new-hampshire <div class="transcript"><p>Many in the Granite State are interested in localism and many farms, restaurants and organizations are pushing to move even more local, but it comes with its challenges. New Hampshire&rsquo;s climate, land and development limits the amount of food that can be made in the state and with no organized distributions centers, localism requires much more work and higher prices for farmers and businesses that take their food.
