A lot of people in the United States love chocolate, and there’s a growing demand for it to be made at home.
But a lot of them are not going to be making it at home, says Stephanie DeYoung, an associate professor at the School of Food Science and Technology at Cornell University.
“You’ve got a lot more food processors out there who will make it,” she says.
“They’ll make it from scratch, and that’s going to lead to a lot less land use.”
DeYoung and her colleagues have been studying how these new chocolate producers are using the landscape they are creating to find ways to conserve land.
One of those is a new facility in Minnesota called a micro-brewery.
The owner, Mike Pacheco, has built a small brewery and chocolate farm in a rural area of his family’s farm in the tiny community of Biltmore, Minnesota.
Deyoung says there’s been a lot movement in the region over the past few years.
People are starting to look at farming in this way, she says, with the farm as a way to get some fresh produce to market, and as a small way to produce a lot fewer animals.
Pacheco’s farm is also an example of a company that has taken on land that wasn’t used for agriculture, says DeYoung.
They have planted trees, he says, and have reclaimed the land and turned it into a beautiful park and forest.
But they are also growing a lot, and it’s creating a lot space for land use and wildlife habitat.
There are plenty of people who would like to be able to grow their own food.
But DeYoung says this is a challenge for many small-scale chocolate producers.
We are not able to put out the kind of chocolate that is very widely available and enjoyed by a lot,” she said.
A lot of the land is being converted into housing.
The land that the micro-beer brewery sits on is already occupied by a housing project.
For DeYoung’s research, she wanted to see how the microbrewery was making money off of the area.
She had two goals.
First, she was looking at the microbusinesses who were growing food in the area, and the second was to look for ways that these small businesses could get a foot in the door.
When the microhouse was being built, it was a pretty standard-issue building that had been around for a long time, but now it was undergoing a major renovation, and now there was a whole new set of challenges.
What she found was that there was more space for small businesses to grow and to operate than previously.
This is something that has happened with micro-chocolate, where a lot has changed.
Instead of just one factory producing chocolate, there are now multiple producers, so there are more options available.
It’s a little bit of a miracle to me that this is happening in a way that is sustainable, and we can have a sustainable environment that allows us to produce as many as we need to,” DeYoung said.”
In the microbeer business, there’s actually a lot that is being done at the plant itself.
There are some additional resources that are being used in the brewing process, for example, there is a large amount of organic corn and soybeans being used for feed for the cattle.”
The microbreweries have found ways to grow food and help conserve land, but they are not a magic solution for people who are not interested in using their land for food production.
Many small-to-medium sized micro-businesses are focused on producing a lot in their area, but the demand for artisanal chocolate is so high that they need more land to grow.
Small-scale artisanal food is still very much a niche market, DeYoung cautions.
Some people are more interested in having their own place to do it.
I think they’re not necessarily looking for a lot to go around, but for small-sized businesses to get a foothold in this space, and to be a part of the overall food system,” she explained.
Micro-breweries are also creating new products to fill a niche.
In the past, chocolate has been a staple in American culture, but with artisanal micro-liquor, people are finding that chocolate can be a new way to enjoy the world.
While the micro brewery was designed to produce artisanal products, the microliquors are becoming more mainstream.
On the market today, they include: The first bottle of coffee beans in the world, brewed by a microbrewer in a small village in Kenya.
