But recently a new pastured pork and grass fed beef vendor, Full of Life Farm joined the Mountain View farmers' market. The proprietor, Bernard Smith, has an interesting story - growing up on a family farm in the Willamette Valley in Oregon, before moving to San Francisco for work, only to eventually take over the family farm, and sell sustainable meat in Oregon and in SF Bay Area markets. Although I'm not crazy about the meat actually being raised in Oregon, I am excited about this new potential connection to healthy, delicious, sustainable food.

Full of Life Farm: New Sustainable Meat Vendor @ MV Farmers' Market
Ever since TLC Ranch closed down shop a couple months ago, I have been lamenting the lack of a sustainable, pastured pork vendor at the Mountain View farmers' market. Other than the sporadic sustainable meat sales from Hidden Villa, I have not found a convenient, local option of pork (which happens to be the most consumed protein in our family) - with Whole Foods serving as an okay option, but where I often feel little or no connection to the farm or ranch that grows our food.
