Publishing during Organic September, this issue looks at Food with Integrity. We asked the finalists of Organic Farmer of the Year award for their take on this topic. People want to know more about the food they eat, the person or farm behind the food, so it’s not surprising that direct sales in the form of veg boxes, veg stands and milk vending machines are increasing in value. Rebecca Swinn looks at farm-gate sales and how they can boost the bottom line while Pete Mundy and Sonia Oliver look at establishing a virtual community. Elsewhere, there are articles on alternatives to soya, Amazing Carbon founder Christine Jones, mastitis in dairy cows, growing salad leaves and spelt.
