Edible Radio Victual Reality: Tom Philpott with Eliot Coleman

Posted By admin On May 26, 2011 @ 8:00 am In Farm & Garden | Comments Disabled

Eliot Coleman is one of the most innovative, successful, and influential small-scale farmers in the United States. Eliot runs Four Seasons Farm [1] in Maine, where he has become legendary for producing top-quality vegetables through Maine’s harsh winters. His books, which include The Winter Harvest Handbook [2], and Four Season Harvest [3], are considered bibles among farmers trying to extend their seasons in cold climates. But Eliot isn’t just a guru of the field and the greenhouse. He’s also an intellectual with a commanding grasp of the history of agriculture. In this edition of Victual Reality, the podcast about food politics, Eliot tells me how he came to farming; we also talk about organic farming’s historical roots and where it’s going next.  To listen to the podcast click here.
