Recent useful reading.

There are a number of E-Books which I have purchased recently which I would commend to anyone who is interested in Agriculture and Food. 

The first is The Ominvore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan. This book looks at three food systems and compares them, it is fascinating to realise how significant the role of Corn and Soyabeans are in US agriculture. The second book stems from the first. 

Folks, this ain’t normal by Joel Salatin. This looks in greater depth at Joel’s Farm Polyface Farm and how he struggles against the USDA to bring local foods to Market. 

The third book is The Dirty Chef by Matthew Evans and in it he brings a Tasmanian perspective to some of the issues raised by the first two Authors.
