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