Salt Lake City, UT – The downtown farmer's market begins a new season in Salt Lake City tomorrow - a good opportunity to talk about the condition of independent farms and the growing trend of community supported agriculture. Why do the striped beets on John Borski's little farm in Kaysville taste so good? What is it about Jamie Gillmor's Morgan Valley lamb that is so flavorful? It's more than just good soil and open range land. It has something to do with scale and community. Among our guests today the writer George Pyle will make his case against industrial food and for the independent farm. (Rebroadcast)
