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.
