(article, Culinate staff)

Becoming more aware about where your food comes from usually means becoming more aware about global issues of sustainability. California artist Douglas Gayeton, for example, recently documented what he dubbed "the lexicon of sustainability" around food, with a slideshow featuring food producers who are living embodiments of such terms as "organic," "free range," "grass fed," "permaculture," and "artisanal." "Heritage breed," for example? Gayeton defines it as "a domestic animal once bred to adapt to local environments that disappeared with the introduction of industrial agriculture."
