While at Koinonia Community Farm in Americus, Georgia, I talked with John Hall who is the author of the book The West Window. The book is set in 1948, which Hall told me was a pivotal year in regard to a tremendous shift in farming technology. Pre-1948, there were some 10,000 operating small farms in Vermont. With the evolution of larger and more high tech farming technology, these numbers started to dwindle almost exponentially — as they did all over America. During Campaign 2000, I told the Country Today newspaper in northern Wisconsin that when we lose a small farm, we lose an integral part of the fabric of a much saner society. Note: While a ficticious work, Mr. Hall’s book captures the essence of some of the struggle against modern technology on the farm. Our campaign believes that struggle should go on.
