I'm Hippo, a book-reading (yes, I did say book reading) hippopotamus from the African savanna and that's my best friend, Al, on my head.

In an effort to save our home and the rest of the world from the inexorable advance of industrial agriculture, we have added our weight (over 4000 pounds) to the vanguard of grassroots movements that are working to regenerate the Earth. Our specialty is sniffing out and telling you about the best places for food that will help tip the scale towards Earth-restorative traditions. We're starting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.

Tosa and Brookfield Farmers Markets

We got around to a couple farmers’ markets on Saturday.

We saw our friend Elliott, the Tosa Farmers Market manager, soon after we entered the market. “Hippo and Al!” he said. I think he was happy to see us.

We bought some little tomatoes and lettuce mix from Nina and Family Gardens. If I had more hooves, we would have gotten some of the zinnias. I love flowers. As it was, I had Al holding the carrots under my hat.
