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.

Feasts

My birthday is always a day for giving thanks, but this year it was federally-sanctioned: November 24th was also Thanksgiving Day. So, the day of excessive eating was even more over-the-top. It was topped off with my mom's world famous cheesecake smothered in a backyard blueberry sauce! And, as the guest of honor, I didn't even have to serve myself...(my sister presented it because she felt bad for forgetting my birthday present!)
