A Defense of the Family Farm

This audio piece comes from the loving work of many hands. It stems from the wise words of agrarian philosopher, Wendell Berry, and is carried by the voice of Stefania Quaini. This piece captures moments only possible because of the decades of work put into Cascina Lago Scuro by the Grasselli family and their community. I was lucky enough to witness some of that work, their connection to the land, and respect for the natural systems embedded in the farm. I hope that others may learn from their example.
