Words of Wisdom
Our domestic food system depends, in large part, on farmers. What happens when over 400 million acres of agricultural land changes hands, however, as increasing numbers of farmers retire? Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture is committed to “farming for the future,” a concept that is explored in Letters to a Young Farmer, a collection of 36 essays written by pillars of the food and farming community including Wendell Berry, Barbara Kingsolver and Michael Pollan. The inspiring anthology focuses on land stewardship, climate change and advice to fledgling farmers everywhere. Available in bookstores and online at LettersToAYoungFarmer.org.
