Thanksgiving at Inspiration Farm -- the 100 meter diet

Whatcom county resilient foodsheds include global, local, glocal (a combination of the previous two), and the very local, as in the 100 meter diet we experienced this Thanksgiving. Living in the Pacific Northwest is literally, a garden of Eatin.' Here, young farmer Rosie Kerkvliet carves the homegrown turkey.

Taste testing -- two homegrown turkeys; heritage breed, in the foreground. 
Also, homegrown portobellos (from inoculated woods at Inspiration Farm in Whatcom County) with on-farm eggplant.

Butter with sprouted-flour breads.
Rabbit stew (traditional German style -- Hasenpfeffer) 
Cornbread -- homegrown and pan-cooked.
 Squash pie.
 Our own raspberries and rhubarb.
Local cream and raspberries -- a nutrient-dense delicious dessert.
Making gravy with freshly-ground oat flour.


  1. Thanks for the inspiration to eat locally, and healthy too. We do have a great climate for most things! LOVE your Thanksgiving photos. Thanks for doing this.

  2. Great to have so many locavores! Gigi
