Hedgerow Harvest is an idea that has been long in coming. This idea was born of our love for the environment, and food. Ever heard the old saying, “You are what you eat”? We realized that the chemicals, hormones, and other nastiness contained in our food was not giving us what we wanted. The older we got, the worse we felt. Until we changed our eating habits.
The idea behind Hedgerow Harvest is to be responsible for our lives, to eat and live mindfully.
That’s all well and good, but how? That’s what this website is all about.
The food system in the United States is making us sick, literally. Over the past few decades, obesity has grown (pun intended) to be one of the major health problems we face. Factory farms pollute the environment, giant agribusinesses are creating “Franken-foods” and “Super Weeds”, the inhumane treatment of food animals is horrific, and forcing herbivores to eat animal by-products has created previously unknown diseases in humans, just to name a few of the major problems facing our food system. Sustainable living is of paramount importance for our health, the environment, and our future.
