Against the Grain

Immigrant Farmers and Alternative Ag

We hear a lot about immigrant farmworkers toiling in the fields, but some of them go on to start their own farms in the U.S. Laura-Anne Minkoff-Zern asserts that although many immigrant farmers of color are committed to alternative food practices, they tend to be overlooked in the story of local and alternative food. The ideals and practices of these farmers, she says, align in certain ways with the push for a more democratically controlled and less exploitative food system. (Encore presentation.)
