What I Learned at Terra Madre

Farming, Spring '07

Farming, Spring ’07

I received a journalism fellowship in ’04 to traverse Europe’s farm markets, but I couldn’t break away til the fall of ’06. I saw cows, goats and pigs in five countries and talked to farmers who leave their wild boars to eat acorns in the forest. I learned about chestnuts in Italy. I produced little journalism from it but wrote this little essay.
