For those who find themselves with more free time than usual (and even for those who don't), here’s a longer-than-usual video of the week. It’s worth watching.
Robb Wolf interviews farmer/rancher Will Harris on his “Healthy Rebellion” show. Harris, a fifth-generation farmer in Bluffton, Georgia, recounts how his great-grandfather farmed, how his father transitioned to an industrial farming model after World War II, and how—and why—he (Harris) transitioned back to a regenerative model.
Harris explains how initially, it was his concern for animals that led him away from industrial agriculture and back to a model that allows animals to express their instinctive behaviors.
One change led to another, until his farm, White Oak Pastures, ultimately became a model for regenerative agriculture.
Harris covers a lot of ground in this video, from the unintended (bad) consequences of industrial agriculture to the unintended (good) consequences of regenerative agriculture.
You want to watch this. Really.
