We Learn What We Eat: Putting Local Food on the Table and in the Curriculum
Twenty-five years ago, my in-laws came to visit my wife and me in central Ohio. They were city folks from Philadelphia who couldn't understand why we had moved to the country.
We timed their visit to coincide with Knox County's Heart of Ohio tour. Each fall this self-guided drive along the area's scenic back roads features stops at farms, grange halls, and other sites that offer glimpses into local rural life. This particular tour included a turkey farm outside the town of Danville.
