Most clearly perhaps in the words of novelist, poet, farmer, and social critic, Wendell Berry, sustainable agriculture is "agriculture that does not deplete soil or people." [...] from the same place, "Sustainable farming practices . . . may provide us both healthy food and food security, especially if they are combined with an alert consumer culture that understands the importance of healthy food, the dangers of processed foods based on industrial models and where that healthy food comes from locally and how it is raised" (119).
