Hippo and Al, Mending the Earth Through Food

Mending the Earth Through Food
We are your guides to restaurants, markets, food trucks, vendors, and more that offer responsibly grown and sourced food.

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 from the terrible giant known as Big Agnes (Big Ag for short), 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.

Hidden Treasure

We want to inspire you to search for treasure in the most unexpected places. And even if you find nothing, you might come to realize that the motherlode is not in the destination but in the interactions with humans, chickens, and alpacas you will meet along the way. Please read our story here.
