“Eating is an Agricultural Act.” So said Wendell Berry, inspirational author and environmental activist, in his manifesto, “The Pleasures of Eating,” which just so happened to inspire Michael Pollen’s love of food. On April 2 and 3, Wendell joined Organic Valley farmers and staff at its 2014 Annual Meeting as the main guest. He spoke about the issues we’re facing today and how farming can be part of the solution.

 

Watch Wendell’s reading of one of his essays, “The Future of Agriculture” and a love story, “Down in the Valley, Where the Green Grass Grows.”

 

Watch Wendell have a conversation with good friend and Organic Valley farmer, David Kline, author of Great Possessions: An Amish Farmer’s Journal.
