Food comes from farms. Producing food requires farmers to work creatively. Each farmer has his/​her own goals in mind – perhaps to become more productive or efficient, to improve soil health or water quality, or to breed sounder livestock lines. According to their own skills and interests they invent new tools, build new machines, reorganize infrastructure, utilize innovative practices, develop new markets, reclaim brown fields, cook good food, build new community, or organize social structures. Mini-farm, mega-farm, organic, conventional, individual, family-run, urban, rural, chaotic, meticulous, tractor-powered, animal-powered— farming is a diverse and creative process.
