What is food historic? What comrpises food heritage?
Most of us have childhood memories of food places—maybe a restaurant, or a cider mill—maybe an old watermill, thick with flour dust, or a market where the vendors gave us free pieces of fruit.
What about local orchards and groves? Old vineyards, breweries and fishmarkets? Whatever happened to that creaky old farm with the perfect blackberries? The big open air city market right downtown? The ranch where you could see exactly what your future side of beef was eating?
Food sites/food stuff. Healthy food. Local sourcing. Personal stories. And more. As we lose our connection with our food, and with the people who grow and process it, we lose much of our cultural history and identity. The FOOD Museum is out to preserve our food heritage.
