Letter from a Farm

Who grows the food we eat? Who sows the seeds, tends the soil, picks the fruits and harvests the carrots? At ARC, we want to put faces to our food.

Agroecology is not one fixed way of doing agriculture, rather it is a philosophy, set of practices, and way of engaging the land with many different techniques and strategies. Welcome to our Letter From the Farm series.

Through telling their own personal farming stories, these farmers are showing how agriculture can be done.  Penned by a growing number of young farmers across the continent, you can find out how these characters ended up farming, and what’s involved on a day to day practical level. What are the struggles for new entrants? How did they deal with the extreme weather of the notorious 2018 summer months? What farming practices do they use and why? How do they make the tough decisions about money – about the balance between best practice and earning cold hard cash? What do they find useful to guide their work? How does policy constrain or enable their work?
