From the Farm to the Table: What All Americans Need to Know about Agricultureby Gary Holthaus
In From the Farm to the Table, Gary Holthaus illuminates the state of American agriculture today, particularly the impact of globalization, through the stories of farmers who balance traditional practices with innovative methods to meet market demands. Holthaus demonstrates how the vitality of America's communities is bound to the successes and failures of its farmers. Farmers explain how their lives and communities have changed as they work to create healthy soil, healthy animals, and healthy food in a context of ineffective federal policy, growing competition from abroad, public misconceptions regarding government subsidies, the dangers of environmental damage and genetically modified crops, and the myths of modern economics.
