Abstract

This was presented at the 25th anniversary conference of the publication of Wendell Berry's The Unsettling of America, April 25-27, 2002, Georgetown University. He notes the move to a bifurcated food and farming system with increasingly large farms that produce a single, undifferentiated bulk commodity for world markets compared to very small farms the sell products with many specific attributes directly to the customer, and the social, economic and biophysical changes that have occured.
