Should they be labeled?

GMO Labeling

A Democratic path forward

GMOs are here to stay, but consumers demand labeling. Doesn’t it make sense for both sides to work together?

The Daily Word in eclipse pics, SpaceX, literal skull camera

The Daily Word

Photos from yesterday's solar eclipse. Albuquerque is represented at 21 and 24.

The story of how Pixar almost deleted Toy Story 2.

Former Las Cruces basketball coach facing sex exploitation charges.

3 dead and 2 missing after a rush of climbers took on Everest over the weekend.

SpaceX hopes to try a second time on Tuesday to send a commercial spacecraft to the International Space Station.

20 awesome zoo signs.

Why organic food may turn you into a jerk.

These creepy photos were creepily taken with a creepy human skull.

Ah, the Fresh Prince.

Extremely awkward 9-1-1 visit.

These parents put their kid in a washing machine to scare him ... so of course the machine's automated system kicked in and it turned on.

Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Organic farm formerly operated by Seeds of Change

Remember when Santa Fe-based organic seed/food company Seeds of Change got bought out by behemoth Mars, Inc? And everyone said it was just a cynical green-washing PR ploy? And they were right, because Mars shut the farm down and moved operations completely out of state, but retained the company’s made-from-scratch brand and feel-good history for itself?

You can buy that farm. It’s on 14 acres in El Guique, just north of Española. The property comes with a residence, two green houses, a 5,000 square-foot processing building and an apple orchard. And it’s certified organic.

Robin Day’s food is like a big, warm hug.

Robin’s Kitchen

Healthy at the Harwood

After 12 years of feeding students at Escuela del Sol montessori, Robin Day and her husband Tom Day began selling her cooking to the public. The initial idea, she told me, was to take advantage of a semi-captive audience: parental units that are obligated to drop by the building twice a day, having been briefed by their kids on how good the food is.

The Talin Market food truck pod meets on Wednesdays for lunch.

Food Truck Takeover

It’s Wednesday at high noon. A half-dozen food trucks line the parking lot at Talin Market, and they’re ready to serve up more than the usual hot dog. I’m here to sample the goods, beginning with The Chopping Block’s soft fish taco garnished with mango salsa. I wash it down with organic limeade at Make My Lunch, then head to Oz Patisserie’s over-the-top desserts, where I’m handed one of the best crème brûlées I’ve had in town.

We’ve Created a GMOnster

Genetically engineered plants will affect organic dairy and meat

The Obama administration struck a blow to freedom in food and agriculture late January when the USDA deregulated genetically modified alfalfa seed. The agency’s decision threatens to deprive farmers of the right to produce GM-free milk and meat, while denying consumers the right to purchase it.

Taking Root in Albuquerque

Beneficial Farms Community Supported Agriculture

I'm glad that eating organic is easier than it used to be. Conventional supermarkets offer some organic produce. Natural food markets abound. It might be time to join a community farm program such as Beneficial Farms CSA, which has been active in Santa Fe since 1994 and is now enrolling members in Albuquerque.

Jeffrey Lee and Elaine DiFederico in the Hand To Mouth greenhouse
Mina Yamashita

Hand To Mouth Foods

It’s Los Ranchos Growers’ Market opening day, and when I arrive at 7 a.m., a lively crowd is already jockeying for position around the stalls. I find Hand To Mouth Foods, LLC where Jeffrey Lee and wife Elaine DiFederico offer tables full of starter plants, assorted greens and carefully packed early harvests. I’m looking for breakfast, and in the midst of the greens is a tempting array of baked goods. I walk away munching a piñon-spangled custard tart, saving an onion galette and a fruit tart for later.

Ask Ari

I've been seeing a lot of organic honey in stores and on restaurant menus. Can you tell me how it's made?

An Offal Story

Cow cheeks and barbacoa

People spend more money on organic meat than on conventional meat for a range of health, environmental and ethical reasons. At my local store, however, none of the meat for sale is organic except the dog food. Unfortunately for my dog, I've been eating most of it myself.
