VELD's Vrijdag Verses – 9

“…as for farmers themselves, they have long ago lost control of their destiny. They are no longer ‘independent farmers,’ subscribing to that ancient and perhaps indispensable ideal, but are the agents of their creditors and the market. They are ‘units of production’ who, or which, must perform ‘efficiently’ – regardless of what they get out of it either as investors or human beings.”

-Wendel Berry, Author & Farmer. Gift of Good Land: Further Essays, Cultural and Agricultural
