WESTON A. PRICE FOUNDATION for Wise Traditions in Food, Farming and the Healing Arts

Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt nutrition education foundation dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the diet through education, research and activism, and supports accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling and prepared parenting. Read their mission statement, consider becoming a member, and join your local chapter.

Regardless of whether you join, if you’re interested in staying informed of local WAPF events such as potlucks, field trips to farmers’ markets, or movie nights, send an email request to me at [email protected] and I will add you the Chapter distribution list.

I offer a variety of classes from time to time. If you are interested in being informed as they are scheduled, I suggest subscribing to my email list here.

As the WAPF Chapter Leader for the South Shore and Southeastern MA. area, my primary responsibility is to provide WAPF Chapter members and other interested parties with “information on sources of organic foods, milk products from pasture-fed livestock, pasture-fed eggs and livestock, and properly produced whole foods in the local area”.

Whenever I receive an email or call from someone in search of locally grown properly produced whole foods, I always recommend they start at their local farmers’ market. Most local markets in our area run from June through October and provide incredible in-season produce as well as pasture-fed meats and other value-add products like honey and cheeses. Thankfully, there are a few markets that run through the winter as well. The links to all of these wonderful markets are included below. Please be sure to visit them and support your local farmers and food artisans!
