Winter issue of Vermont's Local Banquet now available!

We're happy to present our Winter 2014 issue, chock full of good reading:

  • Farmer Nancy Hayden admires our bees in Vermont and looks at the threats that are facing them.
  • Suzanne Podhaizer writes about Salvation Farms' prison gleaning program.
  • Katie Spring asks whether it's better to use the word "harvest" or "slaughter" when discussing the processing of animals.
  • Two stories cover farming and parenting, and making homemade local baby food.
  • Bonnie North offers an intro to permaculture.
  • And Rose Paul recounts how she and her husband dispatched the woodchuck in their garden and threw it in the crock pot for a few good meals.

For the holidays, consider giving a Local Banquet gift subscription to someone you're close to. Subscriptions make great gifts and support the magazine.  Visit our website for subscription info (just $22/year).
