Bread Party in Cluj

Last friday was a city day (first in quite a few weeks). We chose that day because it coincided with the first delivery day of Iulian’s bread-boxes in Cluj. We started the day by loading the car with 140 firebricks (quite an effort) and then went to pick up Iulian from the bus station and […]

The Remaining 5%

A question has come up in discussions regarding Cutia Taranului. The question circles around “what do the peasants get out of this” (this being Cutia Taranului) … usually with an undertone that is really asking “how are the peasants being exploited this time”. So, first of all, a great thank you to everyone who brought […]

Them

There is a fascinating aspect to Cutia Taranului. If you haven’t heard about it yet then it is a CSA (community supported agriculture) type of service which makes it possible for small scale, local producers to sell their produce directly to customers in the city.  In most western cultures food production is largely controlled by […]

Food is not cheap

One of the challenges that good & sustainable farming deals with is market prices. General wisdom amongst both producers and consumers seems to be that food is or should be cheap.

Cutia Taranului: Reaching a Younger Generation

There seems to be in Romania a widespread movement of younger generations moving away from village life to a promise of a better life in a city. As a result most Romanian villages are either aging or altogether dying. When we moved out to a village we were moving against the currents typical here in […]

Land of Peasants

I am writing this post sitting in my parents living room in Israel after watching Andreea in a live appearance on Romanian TV to speak about Cutia Taranului (I’ll update this post with the vide of the interview once it becomes available). Since we launched Cutia Taranului we have been swept up by waves of […]

Cutia Taranului – Celebrating Romanian Peasants

During the time we’ve been here in Romania we have taken an interest in the way of life we have chosen for ourselves – a sustainable and abundant peasant(ish) life. One of my first impressions of Romania (from my first visit here in 2009) was of the market in Piatra Neamt – I was blown […]
