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.

Thinking with History, Carl Schorske

"The architecture of the cities appropriated the styles of bygone times to lend symbolic weight and pedigree to modern building types from railway stations and banks to halls of parliament and city halls. The cultures of the past provided the decent drapery to clothe the nakedness of modern utility."
