The Dominion of Corn

WRITTEN BY

MICHAEL REILLY

The answer to “what gives?” became crystal clear to me. All that corn growing out in all those fields across America is not winding up on my plate - or anyone’s plate - as corn on the cob, or even frozen or canned corn. What’s growing in those fields is appropriately enough called field corn, as distinguished from sweet corn. Field corn is the poster child for so much of what’s broken in our modern American food system. It’s partner in crime is the confined animal industry that produces most of the meat consumed in the this county. The two are closely connected.

When I set off traveling alone at age 24, I admit, I didn't have much of a plan. Little did I know, that I would land right back at home with a new dog in hand. But somehow, all parts of this story came together in a series of perfect synchronicities.

SUZIE BLACKMAN

Every day, I am inundated with healthy lifestyle, food and wellness related articles singing the praises of X ‘super enlightening positive vibe inducing moon tonic’, Y ‘anti aging all youth prevailing never get or let a wrinkle show but still be natural facial oils’, and Z ‘must try greener dietary change so you can achieve a leaner and natural sun glowing hue’ (and help the environment- which I do of course care about). To be honest, I am definitely ‘in' it when it comes to these things.

With chills down my spine, I leaned back gazing up into the vast, perplex, and beautiful mysteries that surround us, though so often unnoticed and allowed myself to relax into this perfect moment of endless gratitude.

And as I awoke in the unforgettable awe of that moment, I knew in my heart I would forever carry this responsibility as my own; that my life moving forward would be the most valiant effort to preserve, respect, and act in accordance with this innate intelligence of nature that binds all parts of this universe as one.

Shaping the Future of Food

WRITTEN BY

MICHAEL REILLY

What these pathfinder businesses all have in common is a holistic understanding of what makes the world healthy. They are Earth-centered, which means their business models seem to be built around sourcing ingredients, preparing food, and conducting operations in a way that is mindful of the health of the planet, and all its life forms. In a word, it’s called Regeneration.  These businesses are not yet using this word much, if at all.

Farm living isn't easy. A lot of hard work goes into every animal and each crop.  We care for our animals and crops as if they were family-knowing that as we nurture them, they will nurture us.

What has all that got to do with a juice shop you say?
