Excerpt from a panel discussion moderated by Lisa M. Hamilton (author: Deeply Rooted: Unconventional Farmers in the Age of Agribusiness). The panel was held at New York's McNally Jackson Books on September 30, 2009. Panelists included Fred Kirschenmann (Iowa State University), Verlyn Klinkenborg (author, The Rural Life), and Mary-Howell Martens (New York farmer).

This edited excerpt focuses on looking beyond the idea of local food and defining a new relationship between farmers and consumers; a relationship built around the idea of food-shed.
