Paper by John Ikerd: Farming in the Future: The Triple Bottom Line
John Ikerd has written some wonderful scholarly papers on small farms.
Here is a paragraph from Farming in the Future: The Triple Bottom Line :
"The new crop producers may label their products as organic, natural, biodynamic, holistic, ecological, or simply rely on being local as a market advantage. Producers of meat, milk, and eggs may further distinguish their products as humanely raised, hormone and antibiotic free, free-range, or grass-fed. But, these new farmers are set apart from commodity producers, not so much by size, or products, or markets, as by their philosophy of farming and their philosophy of life. The size, products, and markets are simply a reflection of their philosophy. They are farming not just for profits; they are farming for better overall quality of life and many are finding it."
