There is currently a food revolution going on. Locally grown food is making permanent inroads into the food we eat, and the way we think about food.
Back last August, I wrote a pair of columns about Fauquier County’s treatment of a small organic produce farm in northern Fauquier owned by Martha Boneta. Zoning czar Kimberley Johnson sent Boneta an official cease-and-desist notice for selling farm products from her farm, and for hosting a birthday party for her best friend's 10-year-old daughter without a special administrative permit. Johnson threatened to fine Boneta $5,000 per violation if she did not stop the alleged unlawful activities within 30 days.
