"People will tell you the organic farming revolution that's taking place is about food safety or ecolgical concerns, but I think if you dig down deep, you'll find that the revolution is really about what people are missing in their lives: good food and a connection to the land, both of which puts us in touch with basic spiritual values."

from The Sun Magazine: "Earthly Delights, Cultivating a new Agricultural Revolution: An Interview with Michael Abelman", by Arnie Cooper, June 2003
