The concept of farm-to-table is a great idea. It emphasizes alternatives to industrialized, processed foods, and attempts to strengthen local economies and food systems by directly supporting farmers.

As it stands today, “farm-to-table” is just a buzz phrase, largely stripped of any meaning it once had.
