The Scoop

Landship Foods is inspired by the conviction that growing and eating healthy food is one of the most important things we can do for both ourselves and the broader communities of which we are a part. The name comes from the language of pre-industrial Europe. Before the enclosure movement and the associated rise in notions of private property swept England, the suffix “-ship” (as in "relationship," or "friendship") referred to an object or an abstraction with collective duties and mutual rights. Thus, the term “landship” suggests that land was an entity through which humans were joined to each other by a set of rights and responsibilities. I advocate for a revival of this awareness.

Ode to the Panfish







O, panfish
you fill my pan
with butter and lemon
you taste good to this man



O, panfish
you are so neglected
right below the foodies
you swim undetected



But O, panfish
do not fret
our many dinners together
I will not forget

Levi, you need a new post. Perhaps it's that the fish sports an expression that has become all too familiar to my own face in these final days of dissertation writing, but I can no longer look into the dead, slippery, black and white eyes of your supper and would like a return of the summery snapshots of hoop-houses and well ordered rows. Please and thank you.
