Eating less meat might be better for the world, but it can definitely be delicious. Buckwheat is actually a fruit, a grain substitute that can be excellent for those with gluten sensitivities, or just a nice alternative to the usual. GRITtv’s Danya Abt and Zac Halberd took a trip up to Ithaca, NY to visit the buckwheat fields, where Erick Smith, Greg Mol and Shane Hardy of Cayuga Organics took her from the field to the flour mill, introducing us to the challenges of sustainable farming and its many rewards.
