Organic, yes

My drive to Fabius, N.Y., this week reminded me once more of my fascination of wind power.

Lovely premise southeast of Syracuse.

The folks who run Trinder Farm say it’s an organic organization on their sign.

Eye-catching.

Eye-catching.

And out behind the working buildings, one lone, tall structure fit into that philosophy.

Yes, they’re harnessing nature as well as growing organically.

Working hard.

Working hard.

The sole windmill, the twirling turbine, surely looked as if it was working overtime as I stopped to take it in with my iPhone 6.

Do you buy organic, locally grown produce? Have you spotted single turbines used by families or businesses? Do you stop at the side of the road to take photographs with your phone?

  1. I’ve always been fascinated with turbines. I have been known to snap a picture or two. I am used to seeing them in rural places across the mid-west, but I spotted one next to a restaurant in a congested area last year that was very surprising.

  2. We have a whole set of turbines along our lake shore – I believe they’re commercial turbines. I’ve never worried too much about whether my produce is organic or not since I know most of it is locally grown. As for photography – I do occasionally try to take pictures at a stop light or something, but then the traffic behind me gets irritated and I have to move on. So I guess I’m more of a sneak photographer.

  3. I grow a lot myself, buy s’more, but not all. Organic is becoming increasingly desirable, that’s fersure! We have a windmill farm about an hour north of the city around Purdue. It generates power for 11,000 homes, mostly farms.
    I DO stop to snap pictures 😀

  4. I love it! I’m more of a fan of locally grown than organic though. Sometimes people go a bit too far with Organic and Non-GMO stuff. Norman Borlaug became “The man who saved 1 billion lives” by genetically modifying some strains of wheat to become high-yield, disease-resistant strains. Tons of lives have been saved and food costs have been driven down by genetic modification, so I’m big on local produce and locally-grown products, but I’m less sure about organic. Being mindful of what you eat is super important though! I wish more people did that, and I think paying attention to organic is great because it makes people be mindful of their food consumption.

    Haha, alright, end rant. Looks like a cool place that I”d love to visit, Mark!

  5. i’m a locavore, when possible, and organic is a good thing. and the movement seems to be growing. i’ve yet to see a wind farm up close and do take pics whenever the mood strikes )

  6. I buy organic as much as possible, but do not buy local unless I’m local to it. That is, I don’t drive out of my way to go to a local-produce Farmer’s Market. That would be reverse ecological footprinting, and, in L.A., those markets seem to be doing very good sustainable business without my assistance. I am happy when I’m near one, though. Feels good, has better produce, great prices, and is yummy!

  7. I almost never take pictures with my phone (I have a proper camera and prefer to use it). The only time I’ve stopped on the side of the road was on the coast of California. I have definitely noticed lots of wind turbines driving in New York state. I don’t buy organics. I do love farmer’s markets in the summer though.

  8. Locally grown? A lot, but not all. As far as I can tell, the Cheetos trees don’t thrive in our climate zone, but my milk comes right from the family-owned and operated dairy farm to my front porch every week.
