Blueberries. Do you love them? You can thank the female farmer who figured out how to farm them. Without her, blueberries may still be a wild, foraged-only treat. Go meet Elizabeth, the blueberry tamer, if you haven't already. #WomensEqualityDay

Sometimes, it pays off to sweat the small stuff.
"Over the last five years, the organic-food business has grown 10 percent annually, on average, and now accounts for 5.5 percent of food sold in the U.S., the group said.
