Promotional Information

Food and the Mid-Level Farm is a clarion call by some of the best minds and voices in the business -- scholars and practitioners alike to reestablish the structures and relationships that will restore an 'agriculture of the middle.' Presenting state of the art research and analysis, this book reveals new and renewed economic models (e.g., coops, and value chains); it reviews and critiques national agricultural, marketing, and land use policies, and reconsiders the values embedded within the agrifood system. Ultimately, it offers a most serious and powerful invitation 'to frame a convincing rationale for a national initiative,' one that will permit economic balance, regional product diversity, and sociocultural values sufficient to shape a sustainable, US agrifood system. Those of us who eat ignore this invitation at our peril. -- Laura B. DeLind, Senior Academic Specialist, Department of Anthropology, Michigan State University, and former Editor-in-Chief of Agriculture and Human Values Food and the Midlevel Farm pinpoints critical developments and takes steps in important original directions that will help expand the discourse of 'sustainable agriculture' beyond the very small and the very local. -- Mrill Ingram, University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum
