Why does someone become a farmer in the 21st century? In thirty-six essays, writers as varied as Dan Barber, Alice Waters, Temple Grandin, Michael Pollan, and Joan Dye Gussow address the challenges facing and ambitions driving those who have chosen—or are considering choosing—to till and tend the soil.
The imperatives are moral, practical, personal, social, and many combinations thereof. The essays themselves are short, and those from actual farmers often very revealing about labor, with thoughtful suggestions. Even if you’re not contemplating the life of a farmer, this is a fascinating way to get a look at what they face and remember why they are important to all of us.
