Look & See - Farmers Are Not a Component of a Machine - Clip

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film Look & See: Wendell Berry's Kentucky, small farmers in Kentucky talk about the challenges--financial and otherwise--of staying afloat in today's world. Interwoven with this is a look at how in the '70s writer Wendell Berry butted heads with US Secretary of Agriculture Earl Butz, who was a major proponent of the industrialization of farming.
