By offering people the opportunity to purchase shares of a harvest, farmers benefit by developing an advance market for their products, and eaters not only gain better knowledge of how and where their food is grown and raised, but also get to purchase very fresh, and nutritious food.

Joan Dye Gussow is one of those rare individuals who listen to their own convictions whether it is of popular held belief or not. Raising a young family in Congers, NY, and working on her graduate degree at Columbia University, she came to the realization that accessing our food in a global way, one that was dependent on transportation (and a finite resource of oil), was not going to be long lasting over time. It did not make sense to her. What did make more sense was to obtain food locally - from farmers, food producers, and yes, even your own back yard.

Joan and Ron Baune both grew up on farms near the Oregon coast and, though they didn't meet till they were grown, when they married they knew they wanted property of their own. Kids came, and the pastures around their home were filled with the livestock the kids raised for Future Farmers of America projects. When the kids grew up the Baunes decided to expand their small vegetable garden and plowed up the well-fertilized pastures to plant vegetables. Ron built a greenhouse for plant starts that they began selling at a nearby farmers' market, and when that garden reached eight acres, they decided to hit the big time with a space at the much larger Portland Farmers' Market. While their plant starts were a big hit, they realized that city people didn't have the larger parcels of land that were common in the suburbs. This "aha!" moment led Joan to the realization that potted vegetables would be a great value-added addition to their product mix, and she came up with her Rainyway Farm Salad Bowls.

As Alison Barratt, from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program informs us, that is precisely what we do when we fish for tuna, salmon and other top predators of the sea.
