The Deliberate Agrarian

“Back in June of 2005, I started an internet blog and named it The Deliberate Agrarian. I wrote stories there about my family and my Christian agrarian beliefs. I shined a light on the rottenness of our modern culture. I pointed an accusing finger at the failures of industrialism and the evil of corporate control over every area of our lives. I spoke of the dangers of relying on the “industrial providers” to supply all our needs in life. Then I wrote about the sweet and wholesome fruit that is produced in a life when modernism is rejected and faith, family and simple agrarian values are embraced.”  More . . .

“Will the Industrial Agricultural Interests Team Up With Government to Take Your Farm? “

“After working on agricultural issues for nearly eight years on Capitol Hill I am convinced that small farms and especially those farms that practice sustainable agriculture are the hope of the future. I must confess though, I am an industrialized farming convert. When I first went to Washington, DC, I was an advocate for the big industrial food giants. I bought into the myth ‘get bigger, get more efficient or get out.’ Ruthless efficiency and cheap food is the mantra of industrialized agriculture. But now I see the futility of continuing down this road” –Carl Little, Esq. www.smallfarmlaw.com

New Format

Dear Friends of Goat Revolution. We are trying new things around here. I have been thinking about what we can do to promote independence through agrarian action. I am liking the blog format.
