EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Broad social changes, including enhancements in food production, take root at the individual and household level. That is what matters in the end. Waving banners and marching and chanting slogans and wearing T-shirts and applying bumper stickers is fun and all. Trust me. But to make a social movement “stick,” it has to be something that prompts changes at the...

It is the time of the year when farmer’s markets, in my hemisphere, are entering that euphoric phase of the year – the time when the fruits of earlier labours are quite obvious on vines and fields and stalks, when folks are delighting in your products, and when the end of the unrelenting labour of the past is at least...

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Part of the beauty of a healthy food system comes from the wide variety of people who are involved. Indeed, there is a glorious and productive assortment of ideas and projects and organizations. Sure, the players don’t all have the same power. And there are conflicts and bruised noses and jerking knees. But on the best of days, when the...

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

What is waste? Well, that depends. If you use the word as an adjective or a noun, it may mean a material that is discarded as no longer useful, given the current levels of imagination and technology. However, as a verb, waste can mean “to use or expend carelessly.” As in, “we are wasting 60 percent of a cod fish.”...

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Labrador. The Big Land. The 3rd word in the official title of a province, even though its territory constitutes over 70% of the land mass of said province. The name “Labrador” was bestowed by a Portuguese explorer, João Fernandes Lavrador. "Lavrador," in Portuguese means “farmer” (or “labourer.”) So it makes sense that on today’s show, we head to central Labrador,...

Hey kid... wanna be a farmer...?!

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

When you were growing up, did your school guidance counsellor ever take you aside and say, in that helpful guidance-counsellor-kind-of-way, “you know, kid, you should think about becoming a farmer?” If so, you’re lucky, but you’re also unusual. Farming is one of those few essential occupations that don’t always have a clearly-marked career path, nor is it necessarily encouraged. (Kind...

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Remember those days when, at a moment’s notice, we would drop in to a restaurant and check out the cuisine? Without masks and social distancing and without providing a full accounting of our identity and our lifestyle before we were served? Depending on where you live in the world, this may, or may not, be on its way back. But...

World traffic in food by massive corporations harms environment, jobs, and health; yields no net change in food availability; and harms jobs and food security everywhere. Hodge calls for prioritizing local food production and distribution and building back local economies.

Certain borders are starting to open up, so this week we return to Iceland on "Fit to Eat." Well, on Zoom anyways. (The internet border didn't close, even though if is often unavailable.) I have often evangelized on the value of comparing approaches to agriculture and food in Iceland and in Newfoundland and Labrador. There is a lot that can...

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

When you hear people talk about "local food," does the picture in your head include fish? Why do some folks talk about "fish and food" as if the two are not in the same category? Why don't we have just one basket for food - one that includes figgy duff and fat back and fiddleheads, as well as fish? Today's...
Where's the Beef?

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Here's a skill testing question for you: about what percentage of the beef that is eaten in Newfoundland and Labrador comes from the province? What do you think? A quarter? Less? A tenth? More? I don't want to spoil the suspense for you, so for the answer you'll have to listen in to this week's "Fit to Eat: the NL...

Tom Chapin, the musician, gave a description of Farmer's Markets as follows in one of his songs: "Like a farm once a week, in your neighbourhood; Its Farmer's Market Good!" Indeed, Farmer's Markets aren't just those days when the country comes to the town with lots of glorious produce in tow, but they are also sites of small business development,...
