It was a very good experience to visit a small charming town, whose name is Tarrytown. Many years ago Dutch people came from Europe and they settled this small town. In the town, people are very friendly and kind. There are some wonderful story about the town, which are Irvington NY. There is a man doesn’t like his wife and drunk a lot. One day he was going on short trip in the town than after met some guys. The guys offer him mushroom to eat and then he was sleeping many years. When he woke up the town changed a lot and also his wife died. The other one is Sleepy Hallow, with a headless horse rider. How did we come to this small interesting town, because of the Mr. Sireci . He gave us an assignment about the food industry and we watched two very informative and different kinds of movies .The movies tell us what we are eating , drinking and what we know about the food industry and organic food.
First of all, the food industry is very important for our society, because food is our essential need. Some big companies ignore people’s health and life. How do they do that? For example, they use some medicine on the animals and they are growing too much and very quikly or they are hiring illegal immigrants who don’t understand about food. These people don’t care about healt or if food is organic, they work unclean places. These causes are making food cheaper and produce in a short time so we eat cheap and unhealthy food.
Second, nowadays people prefer eating organic food. Recently many restaurants have been growing their own vegetables. They want to serve the customers fresh and organic food. We visited one such restaurant last week in Tarrytown. The restaurant is called Blue Hill. It is more like a food lab than a restaurant. All vegetables and animals are grown under control of the staff at Stone Barns. In addition, the restaurant is located inside the farm so customers know what they are eating. The most important thing for the visitors is health and life, and to enjoy the meal.
I really enjoyed visiting this amazing town and the food lab. I ate a tuna sandwich which was delicious and totally organic. After this assignment, I learned food is important to our health and life. It was a very educational trip. Safe nature, safe health – this land is our land.
