For five decades, starting long before organic produce arrived in local supermarkets, the slow food movement arrived and farmers’ markets sprang up in local communities, farmer Wendell Berry was writing about the origins of food and the benefits of eating quality food. Bringing It To The Table is an anthology of essays dealing with the farmer, farming, and food – all written with passion, conviction and eloquence. Berry reminds us that issues he raised almost thirty years ago are still concerns today. He ponders, “How does organic measure up against locally grown? What are the differences between small and large farms, and how does that affect what you put on your dinner table? What can you do to support sustainable agriculture?” Essential reading for people who care about what they eat. Copyright 2009, softcover, 234 pages.
