Want to Get "Back to the Land"? You're Not Alone 14.6.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Over the past century, generations of young people have turned their backs on city life to embrace small-scale farming and back-to-the-land ideals. The exact circumstances for each generation's return have varied: the Great Depression in the 1930s, the Vietnam War in the '60s and '70s, and, more recently, the loss of ecosystems and biodiversity to industrial agriculture and climate change. Each generation has had one common desire: to live a more honest, ethical life of self-sufficiency and oneness with nature. Young farmers today face serious structural obstacles: access to affordable land, a steep (and often self-financed) learning curve, debilitating student loans, and lack of access to health care. But three back-to-the-land farmers managed to succeed in a fickle vocation that seems to demand equal parts skill, determination, and luck. What choices did they make, and are their experiences instructive for struggling young farmers today? Jean-Martin Fortier: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants In the ...

Can Movebutter spread across US amid heated grocery competition? 13.6.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Internet giants like Amazon and Google, retail behemoths like Walmart, Safeway and Target, and scores of brick-and-mortar stores like Whole Foods (often partnered with delivery services like Instacart or Postmates) are pursuing Internet food sales, a market that could surge to $100 billion by 2025, according to the Food Marketing Institute and Nielsen Co. [...] a small San Francisco startup called Movebutter is jumping into the arena, offering direct-to-consumer delivery via FedEx with special boxes and dry ice to keep food fresh. The average supermarket has dozens of peanut butter options, for instance, while Movebutter will offer three: creamy, chunky and honey roasted. “I don’t think you can call this a grocery store with only 500 products,” said Kit Yarrow, a consumer psychologist at Golden Gate University. Trader Joe’s and Costco are beloved because they narrow options to what they know shoppers will love and shoppers trust their pricing to be fair. Mishra said Movebutter orders will arrive ...
