We can start to build on that food education cycle by supporting locally grown farms like ours and many others that are 100% certified organic by the USDA. By supporting locally grown fruits and vegetables you not only support the farmer but the jobs you provide that help make organic dragon fruit possible.
And when we change the way we consume we change the way the world functions for everyone.
So when you're confronted by a $3.00 dollar basket of mission figs ask yourself, "Am I simply getting away with a $3.00 basket of figs or am I being a vehicle of change?"
See it's so much easier to walk away with a $3.00 basket of non organic figs as it is to challenge the corporate farms that exploit our soils, exploit our food ignorance and exploit the subsidy structures that benefit them and keep prices uncompetitive.
So pay attention to your food ignorance and keep striving for purveyors of fruit that are as transparent as we are.
