9781601730060: Small Farms Are Real Farms

Since the middle of the last century, American farm policy has taken the nation into the dead end of industrial farm production. Farming, at its core a biological process, has been transformed into an industrial process, thus demolishing the economic and cultural values upon which the nation was founded. Along the way, small farms have been ridiculed and dismissed as inconsequential but now the seeds of a rural renaissance are being planted, not by these industrial behemoths, but by family-scale farms. In this collection of essays, the multifaceted case for small farms is built using logic and facts. Discover anew the complexity and beauty that is the small farm and learn of the many benefits small farms give to individuals, the environment, the economy and society.
