21st Century Homesteading: Why Grow Your Own Food?

Many people think that the American food supply is the best in the world. So why are so many people going to the trouble of growing their own food, or seeking it from known producers close to home? Harvey Ussery and his wife, Ellen, think the food they grow themselves or buy from local farmers is superior in taste and nutrition to the food found in most grocery stores. About 85 percent of the food they eat is either grown in their own back yard, or purchased face-to-face from local farmers they know personally. Even if you don’t live in the country, you too can enjoy the flavor and nutrition of homegrown produce, and there are many reasons local and homegrown food can be a satisfying alternative to the conventional American diet, including nutrition, food security and food quality.
