"Some people say it’s $6.00 for three marshmallows. But it’s $6.00 for local food. It’s $6.00 in the community. Those things do cost more, but you get what you pay for."

That’s Sam Aulick of 240sweet. Their artisan marshmallows made in Columbus, Indiana would make amazing s’mores at any Fourth of July cookout. We visit their shop to check out some of the more interesting flavors.

After that, Chef Daniel Orr cooks up some mushrooms he foraged for, and a local bartender mixes together some fresh cocktails to enjoy on the porch.

There’s always work to be done on the farm. But often it’s the same work day after day after day. Parts of the job must feel a bit like an assembly line. Wouldn’t it be great if you could just get a robot to do it? That might not be so far off, as Jeremy Bernfeld explains in part two of Harvest Public Media’s series Farmer of the Future.

Our author conversation today is with Denise Schreiber. Her new cookbook Eat Your Roses provides tips for cultivating and cooking edible flowers.

And finally, we sit down with three members of the Local Growers Guild to find out how they are working to better connect local food producers with local food eaters.
