The Choice to Farm

"The Choice to Farm: Of Five Farmers, and the Movement They've Joined is a small research paper devoted to the stories of farmers whom the author identified as college graduates with former non-agricultural careers or ambitions. This criteria was chosen to narrow the demographic of the farmers consulted to those individuals who had every opportunity to do something else but who decided to start farming. The Choice to Farm tells the stories of five farmers who have recently made this choice. The paper concludes with a brief analysis of new farmers as part of a national community working towards agricultural and food policy change, and the force of this community's momentum as a social movement."
