Wikipedia of food

I'm pretty intrigued by Real Time Farms - a newish startup from a former Google software engineer. It's aimed at making food sourcing way more transparent. Instead of having to rely on restaurants who 'say' their food is 'local' with Real Time Farms you can actually see on a map the farms that supply particular restraurants. In short, it's a crowdsourced online food guide with an ambitious goal: “to collectively document the whole food system.” You could describe it as the Wikipedia for food!

By looking at a restaurant’s page on Real Time Farms you can actually see a version of the menu with links that connect specific ingredients with their suppliers. Super transparent and potentially super impressive! Real Time Farms is also on twitter and facebook.
