A Farmerís Pilgrimage: Interview with Michael Ableman

With just two percent of the population growing food for all of us, itís fair to say farmers are a threatened species. Theyíre also not the most social crowd.

Michael Ableman - farmer, writer, photographer and educator - set out on a cross country trip at the height of harvest time to visit Americaís farmers on their own turf. He chronicles his experiences in the new book: Fields of Plenty: A Farmerís Journey in Search of Real Food and the People Who Grow It.

This week, join host Jerry Kay in conversation with Ableman and find out what he saw and heard at the front lines of small scale agriculture, and hear his predictions on the future of food and farming.
