Beginning with the differing challenges of growing annuals versus perennials and the integration of animals in agroecosystems, this course will explore current trends and production methods for growing and raising before moving into the often hidden methods and difficulties in processing, storing, distributing, preparing, and consuming these foods. Various business models and management systems will be explored, with a careful eye toward "sustainable value chains" that focus on environmental, nutritional, economic and cultural sustainability.
