This blog is about my experiences as an underground food journalist in Southeastern United States and sometimes beyond. It is designed to educate you about what food is growing here; who is growing it; and who is cooking it or making it into alcohol. Occasionally this blog is about people who use green tech related to food.

Angora Yarn Made Live, Dade City, Fla
Ever wonder where Angora yarn came from? This past December, I witnessed the process at Steve Melton's farm in Dade City, Florida. Kimberly Buchy of The Fiber Mill, Brooksville, was sitting on a rocking chair spinning yarn. She had a big white fluffy thing in her lap that she was pulling clumps of fiber from to roll into yarn. She let me sit by her to shoot a video.
If you haven't guessed, the big white fluffy thing was an Angora rabbit.
