The Modern Farmer Blog: Getting Down and Dirty, but loving it

Farm. Food. Life.

The mantra of Modern Farmer, and it’s a simple one to follow. An “authoritative resource for today’s cutting-edge food producers and consumers” – the farmers, wannabe farmers, chefs, and passionate home cooks who are influencing the way we eat right now. The website blends hands-in-dirt service, soulful inspiration, and whip-smart reporting. Frank Giustra is the publisher and owner of Modern Farmer Media, he and his team do an excellent job of relaying important news and education to readers everywhere. 

How can we stay up to date with the farmers protests in India? COVID exposure in the meat industry? States and countries that are banning certain chemicals and practices? This is your all-in-one resource for the news that matters. Their holiday section is packed  – for instance, you can learn what houseplants to grow that aren’t poinsettias, read the 2020 Holiday Gift Guide, or learn random knowledge like the difference between a llama and an alpaca. 

The website is great for keeping up on recent farming and agriculture news. Gardeners can learn how to fight garden frost, or even how to make dye with your excess harvest! The Modern Farmer’s Shop offers practical products that will definitely get a conversation started about agriculture. And for the at-home chefs, there are plenty of recipes such as a quick guide to pickling your vegetables and chorizo-stuffed cabbage with carrot an tomato sauce.

 The movement we’re all creating

By broadcasting the news and knowledge that Modern Farmer does, it’s helping us all move towards a greater path. Especially by launching the Million Gardens Movement—a national effort to encourage and support the planting of one million new gardens, whether it’s on a windowsill or in your backyard. Even young gardeners are getting involved by re-posting their photos on social media with #MillionGardens @modernfarmer in their caption. In hopes of getting readers of all ages interested in sustainability, there are plenty of resources your family can use this holiday season!


Modern Farmer aims to bring local business to farmers and producers in the area. And reach a wide range of audience members in other communities to help those local businesses grow.

All while learning about sustainable practices and better food choices. At TexasRealFood, we aim to do the same. You can find a variety of resources and reference guides to help you – such as finding Veteran owned farms in Texas or local farmers markets.  You can find guides that will help you have a “Green Christmas”. And recipes that will invite your family to the table to enjoy traditional meals while opening up the conversation to new topics.
