Every now and again we get kudos from international friends. It warms the heart and loosens the muscles in our achey backs to see that the world all over is excited about good food and farming. This news blast came our way from Finland via friends at the Brooklyn Brewery who (along with the deserving Mast Brothers and other Brooklyn food makers) got a nod as well. How do you say “Thanks for the props!” in Finnish? We don’t know, but we did learn a new word: “maanviljelijä” is Finnish for “farmer”!
