Ellen Kok: The Other Farm

12,50

One farm lies 8 feet below sea level, in the peat meadows of the Netherlands. The other farm is at 750 feet in the hills of Vermont in the USA. But they have so much in common: the same family has been farming each one for three generations; they witnessed prosperity, and the increase in scale of agriculture; each made the leap to organic farming.

The book The Other Farm tells about two farming families who still believe in their family tradition, but who are also seeking new ways to earn a living and contribute to their communities.

The American Thurber family and the Dutch Van der Laan family don’t feel called upon to feed the world. They deliberately aim closer to home. Mass production, they emphasize, always means that you have to sacrifice other things—the very things they value: healthy cows, good soil management, clean water, birdsong around the farm, family life. If you measure the success of a farm just by the amount it produces, in their opinion, you don’t measure the totality of it.

Also available in Dutch.
