Food Revolution Day! What's that?!

Did you know that May 15, 2015 is Food Revolution Day?  Yes, today, recognizes a global campaign to promote practical food education for students. 

Created by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver as a way to combat the increasing prevalence of diet-related diseases, the Food Revolution movement seeks to teach children about our food system (from production to consumption and all parts in between) with the premise that better connectedness with food = enhanced nutrition = improved health outcomes.   Much needed, right?  We think so!

As you know, Nourse Farm believes that connecting folks (students, their parents, really anyone who eats) to good food is critical for a healthy relationship with food.  While we’re not sure that is a “revolutionary” concept, we are excited to contribute to the global food revolution locally. 

Earlier this month, Nourse Farm Nutritionist, Catherine Nourse, was selected as a Kids Eat Right Future of Food Grantee.  Sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Kids Eat Right Foundation, she was chosen to be the Massachusetts representative.  This year’s theme is “Smart Choices.  For a Healthy Planet” aligns well with the farming practices and food choices at Nourse Farm.  Details about the Future of Food activities will be posted on our Events page. 

Recognizing that there may be a little rebel in all of us, we’re wondering how you might “revolutionize” your food choices?!  Send in your responses to catherine@noursefarm.com or post your comment below.

New Website!

As we posted earlier this spring, it’s been a long, cold winter, but those days inside gave us time to “spring” into action (after shoveling out that is). 

We are ready for the 2015 season and excited to share with you our latest and greatest products, news and offerings. 

And the first item for sharing is the updated website.  We took your comments and suggestions and put them to good use.  As you can see, our new site highlights the many different ways, you can “connect with good food”. 

It showcases all of our retail options (the Farm Store, the CSA, and the on-line sale of Jams and Jellies) and features some additional resources (Nourse Farm Community Events, Food Matters, and Blog pages) all designed to enhance communication and information sharing.  So go ahead, download, click, tweet, post, pin, share, and come visit! 

We look forward to seeing and hearing from you soon.     

Eat well to be well!
