Blog Watch: "I Heart Wendell Berry"

When I FINALLY came to Wendell Berry – having known (but sadly not read) his fiction and his essays on things like computers – it was with a mind and heart hungry to learn. I wasn’t disappointed. His writing is clear and lucid, without the aggressiveness that characterizes some of Salatin’s work. Yet, he is saying the same things – we must farm small and diverse. We must learn to live locally, to conserve our environment, to treat our animals well. We must stop thinking that the measure of success for a farm is how much income it brings in, but instead measure it by how well it sustains the people who tend it and the people around them.
