Nearly five months have passed since a horse named California Chrome made his bid to be the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed accomplished the feat in 1978. Chrome’s shot at horseracing immortality was dashed at the Belmont Stakes on June 7, but the colt that was bred, birthed (foaled), and initially raised at Harris Farms in Coalinga, still grabs the attention today of racing fans and non-racing fans alike.

A.G. Kawamura, owner and partner of Orange County Produce, L.L.C. and Western Growers Board Director, recently spoke at a local TEDx Orange Coast Conference taking on the notion that our national food system is broken and needs fixed.  His speech entitled, “Food is a privilege, not a right,” takes on the critics who think that we need to change our views about food and agriculture.
