A sonic picture of today's family farms...

Five Farms is an incredible new radio documentary follows five family farms through a year of their lives. Through planting, nurturing, stewardship, harvest and succession.

It brought me back to the never-ending mesas that dot the horizon on Hopi land. It made me think about the struggles and challenges of the people growing my food. It made me plant each new seed in my community garden plot with intention. It made me stop and pause for an hour each Wednesday night and think and dream of what it might be like to be a farmer.

A don't miss for everybody who eats.
