Trust Your Farmer? Sustainable Practices, Home-grown Institutions, and the Quest for Resilient Food Systems

Third-party certification prevails as a necessary oversight mechanism in complex global food production systems. It is ultimately a substitute for trust. At local and regional scales, however, certification risks becoming a cumbersome and costly barrier—crowding out simpler, efficient and low-cost means for ensuring safety and sustainability. Relationship-centered, home-grown institutions—like community-supported agriculture (CSAs), farmers markets, and direct trade approaches—nurture trust among food system stakeholders and consumers.
