Good Cooking Begins with Good Farming

“We cannot prepare a good meal from poor food, produce good food from poor soil, maintain good soil without good farming, or have good farming without a good culture — a culture that places proper value on the proper maintenance of the natural sources, so that the needed supplies are constantly available. This food is a product both natural and cultural, and good cooking must be said to begin with good farming.”

Wendell Berry
“A World Rich in Natural Resources,” 1985
