Summary, etc.: A Farmer's Road tells the story of how two PhD soil scientists traded the security of academic tenure for the relentless challenges and economic uncertainty of operating a Grade A goat dairy and farmstead creamery in central Illinois. Surrounded by commodity-based agribusiness, they strive to embody the core principles of sustainability, showcasing artisan goat milk products during slow-food dinners on the farm. Their mission to educate the public about locally-sourced small-farm diversity is literally changing the American food system one meal at a time.
