Synopsis: Jim VanDerPol farms and writes in a western Minnesota world very different from the one in which he was raised in the 1950s and 1960s. The small, diversified farms and tight-knit communities of his youth have been replaced by town jobs and gigantic equipment operating on huge tracts of land. The culture of the agriculture that Jim knew is almost entirely gone, and he wants it back. Through his farming, alternative marketing, writing and work with sustainable agriculture groups in Minnesota, Jim is making an important contribution toward efforts to resurrect that culture. Where others simply pine for days of yore and lament what has happened, in Conversations with the Land Jim offers a clear and down-to-earth vision for what each of us can do to return agriculture to something that can do better by the environment, the people who live within it, and even the nation as a whole. Those who are concerned that we have moved too far from the land will find much to think about - and draw inspiration from - in the pages of this book. Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics “This is a book of personal reflections on farms, farming, and farmers. VanDerPol talks about the weather, people and communities, and better ways to produce food and to live. From his base in Minnesota, he gives his thoughts about the way agriculture has changed and what can be done to make it better.” John Ikerd, author of Sustainable Capitalism “Jim Van Der Pol has the talent as a writer to share his unique wisdom through compelling stories of life on a real family farm.” Frederick Kirschenmann, author of Cultivating an Ecological Conscience: Essays From a Farmer-Philosopher “Anyone who wants to experience what living a life of wellbeing looks like in the real world, as well as get a clear understanding of the many things that stand in the way of living such a life for most of us, should read this engaging book.” Shannon Hayes, author of Radical Homemakers “Jim is an authentic voice from our movement. Plain spoken and poetic, a read through these essays will bring urbanites closer to the land, and farmers more deeply to their roots. I love this book.” David Kline, editor of Farming Magazine “These essays show us that agri-culture and agri-business are two entirely different worlds. This is a book about good farming.” Patricia Larenas, author on eatdrinkbetter.com "Jim VanDerPol is a farmer- writer who writes with clarity and skill about how agribusiness has changed not only our relationship with the land and our food, but how our sense of community and connection to one another has been displaced as well."
