About Me
From Field to Table: Re-framing Agricultural Methods and Purposes

Hi, my name is Gina, and I worked in commercial kitchens for years. As the local food movement became more popular over the last few decades, I began to think heavily about the source of the foods I was cooking, and ultimately, I decided that I wanted to get my hands dirty. Instead of just cooking, I wanted to grow my own food. Now, I know every step of the process of creating something as simple as a whole wheat bagel, and that includes everything, from growing and grinding the wheat, to kneading the dough, to pulling the bagel out of the oven. I also understand this process for a range of other dishes. If you have questions or concerns about agricultural processes or methods, I hope you find the info you need here.
