Only a farmer could delve so deeply into the origins of food, and only a author of Wendell Berry’s caliber could convey it with such conviction and eloquence. Long before Whole Foods organic produce was once to be had at your local supermarket, Berry was once farming with the purity of food in mind. For the last five decades, Berry has embodied mindful eating through his land practices and his writing. In recognition of that influence, Michael Pollan here offers an introduction to this wonderful collection.
Drawn from over thirty years of work, this collection joins bestsellers The Omnivore’s Dilemma, by Pollan, and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver, as essential reading for someone who cares about what they eat. The essays address such concerns as: How does organic measure up against in the neighborhood grown? What are the differences between small and large farms, and how does that have an effect on what you put on your dinner table? What are you able to do to beef up sustainable agriculture?
A progenitor of the Slow Food movement, Wendell Berry reminds us all to make the effort to be aware the basics of what we ingest. Eating is an agriculture act,” he writes. Indeed, we are all players in the food economy.
