Humanity's worst invention: Agriculture

Clive Dennis

22nd September, 2006

Roadkill Chef

Paul Kingsnorth

1st June, 2006

‘OK then,’ I say to Fergus, with a challenge in my voice, ‘what about badger?’ ‘Badger?’ says Fergus, his eyes on the road as he drives me into the Kent countryside. ‘Many times. There’s no rhyme or reason to badger. Sometimes it tastes really gamey and uriney, even if it’s fresh. It can be excellent though.’ I look at him as he drives. He’s definitely serious. more...

ARE YOU LIVING IN A FOOD DESERT?

John Reynolds

1st April, 2005

You do if… you live in an area where healthy food is either non-existent or too expensive. This is likely to be the case if your only ‘local’ food shopping option is a supermarket, and you have no good small independent local shops, farmers’ markets or box schemes serving your area. more...

Special Report Supermarkets: UK Apple Market

Felicity Lawrence

1st September, 2004

We were being given 20 to 21 pence a kilo, they were selling them in the stores at twice that, and we needed 32 pence to break even. The prices would change by the day, and then they’d take 60 to 90 days to pay you. more...
