DEAR NEW FARM:
I'd like to find out more specific information about sustainable
production of blue agave cactus for production of tequila
and who is doing it.
Our friend and colleague Laura Sayre reviewed a book on that
very subject recently. Here’s what Laura had to say:
I don't know too much about sustainable agave production
what I learned from Ana
Valenzuela-Zapata’s and Gary Nabhan's book. I
assume you read the review.
So I would definitely recommend the book itself for further
You might also look at the New Farm articles in a series
that Don Lotter did for us, for instance this one on pulque,
Mexico’s unique and vanishing drink. And this
one on agave, In
Agave country … and no one can afford to grow it!.
You can find the whole series in the columns
I hope that's helpful!
us with comments, suggestions and questions.
