In From the Farm to the Table, over forty farm families from
America's heartland detail the practices and values that relate to
their land, work, and communities. Their stories reveal that those
who make their living in agriculture--despite stereotypes of
provincialism perpetuated by the media--are savvy to the influence
of world politics on local issues. Gary Holthaus demonstrates how
outside economic, governmental, legal, and business developments
play an increasingly influential, if not controlling, role in every
farmer's life. The swift approval of genetically modified crops by
the federal government, the formation of huge agricultural
conglomerates, and the devastating environmental effects of
chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides are just a few
issues buffeting family farms. From the Farm to the Table explores
farmers' experiences to offer a deeper understanding of how we can
create sustainable and vibrant land-based communities by adhering
to fundamental agrarian values.
