Apline Skiing - Day 12

Bode Miller is an Olympic and World Championship Gold Medalist in alpine skiing who grew up a vegetarian on a small family farm of 450 acres of organic produce.

These days he runs his own organic farm Turtle Ridge much the same way–no pesticides and keeping the affairs among those closest to the farm.

Turtle Ridge, which has a variety of produce, including tomatoes and artichokes, does not sell to retailers, only locals.

Not only is buying local great for the farmer, it saves carbon emissions and usually results in a better tasting vegetable.

According to localharvest.org, most produce in the U.S. is picked 4-7 days before put on the grocery store shelves and travels an average of 1500 miles before it’s sold.

Makes straight from the garden and a 4 mile bike ride to pick up corn sound so much more refreshing!

“We grew our own produce.,” Bode said. “It was all organic.”

When Bode grew up, he continued the farmer’s tradition and bought an organic farm in New Hampshire

“I didn’t buy the place with the intention of making millions off it, I just like the idea of having a piece of land that is mine and that I can do whatever I want with as I grow older.”

Gorgeous red ripe tomatoes can be seen in the video below where Bode gives his thoughts about sustainable food and farming.
