The revolution that is occurring in the American food system – from the way we produce food to what we choose to buy and consume – is documented in 14 essays on farming, sustainability and the return of the local economy. Eminently readable, yet fully documented, The Emergent Agriculture takes the reader on a journey through the food system by way of the experiences, stories and anecdotes of the farmers of Longfield Farms, their neighbors, friends and mentors. The Emergent Agriculture provides the reader, whether farmer or consumer, with a fuller appreciation of the role that regular people are playing in restoring safe, clean and healthful food to the American table. It teaches that support of the local food system and local economy are not fads, but critical elements of sustainability. The Emergent Agriculture will leave you feeling optimistic about the future of food.
