Letters to a Young Farmer is for everyone who appreciates good food grown with respect for the earth, people, animals, and community.
Three dozen esteemed writers, farmers, chefs, activists, and visionaries address the highs and lows of farming life, as well as larger questions of how our food is produced and consumed, in vivid and personal detail. Barbara Kingsolver speaks to the tribe of farmers - some born to it, many self-selected-with love, admiration, and regret. Dan Barber traces the rediscovery of lost grains and food ways. Michael Pollan bridges the chasm between agriculture and nature. Bill McKibben connects the early human quest for beer to the very modern challenge of farming in a rapidly changing climate. US representative Chellie Pingree probes the politics of being a young farmer today. Farmer Mas Masumoto passes on family secrets to his daughter-and not-soon-forgotten stories to us all.
