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.

Continenal Philosophy, Simon Critchley

"The problem here is that science is wonderful...Through the work of science's helpmeet, technology, our lives have been transformed and improved to an extent unimaginable to someone from the ancient world, or even our great-grandparents. Yet, despite this - or perhaps because of it - the question of wisdom still nags at us, it still irritates like an appendix we believed we no longer needed. The question is: does scientific knowledge eradicate the need for an answer to the question of the meaning of life?"
