My freezer is stuffed with organic food

When someone living in the valley takes in relatives or friends coming from a big city, the question the latters keep asking is : ” Are there any organic shops around here ?” This question really sounds strange to us as the more logical one should be : ” Are there any store departments around here ? “
Buying and having local and organic food is a way of life , a well grounded habit in the locals’ attitude. Here, when you live in a small village and happen to run out of something , your first reaction is to walk to the market gardener’s in the neighbourhood hamlet or ask the baker who grounds his own flour , a few steps away. And when there’s a party around, what else but our friend the brewer’s beer or the organic Clairette from the winemaker’s property at the end of the road ?
Our valley has the biggest number of organically managed farmlands throughout France. That allows us,- and why not you ?- to get loads of good supplies and fill the freezer to the top. And who knows ? Some villagers may treat you to some fresh produce coming right from their gardens. Is there anything more organic or local than that ?
