Finance to Farming: McConaughy

Many of us are aware of the issues surrounding where our food comes from — how safe and wholesome it is, the devastating effects the industrialized food system has on the environment, the brutal treatment of livestock, and the demise of family farming.

But few among us who have read “Fast Food Nation” or “Omnivore’s Dilemma” or viewed the movie “Food Inc.” have so completely altered the direction of our lives as Robin and Jon McConaughy of Hopewell. The McConaughys have shaken off their high-powered, high-income careers to launch a pioneering 10-year project, now in its eighth year, to bring the movement to eat local, natural, sustainable, farm-to-table, and humanely-grown food to a new level.

  1. Please know that the ads on religion that appear on this page are NOT my views. I am incensed! I was trying out the Google ads out of curiosity, not to make money, and this is an excellent reason to cancel them.
