Living Liberation

In keeping with the theme of this year’s Wild Goose Festival, we’ve titled our talk “Living Liberation from the Industrial Food Complex.”

Here’s a link to the festival website regarding our presentation.  http://wildgoosefestival.org/speakers/bill-and-cherie-guerrant/

We haven’t yet figured out how we’ll tend the farm while we’re gone, but we’re looking forward to a weekend camping and hanging out with some awesome people.

  1. Bill, wow, I just discovered your website. You and your wife have had quite the lifestyle change. How long has it taken to bring the farm back from modern farming practices to organic growing? Maybe that’s still in progress. I do admire your decision to move back to the farm and change it to an organic farm. Here in Nebraska to sell at a Farmer’s Market and claim to be organic, certification by the state has to be acquired and certain standards have to be followed. I don’t know what they are but I’ve heard it’s not an easy thing to get. I know that I probably would not qualify as I am not 100% organic with my growing and composting of yard waste. Organic growing is difficult to do in an Urban environment.

    Farms with animals has always posed difficulty being gone. Tending to animals on a daily basis keeps farmers from doing family things or in your case family events for multiple days. Hopefully you have some near by farm friends that will tend your animals while away. Good luck with your speaking engagement.

    Have a great living liberation day.

      The transformation of our farm is still ongoing, but we’ve made a lot of progress. The soil here was dead when we began. Most of it is bursting with life now.

      We don’t have any government certifications and we don’t intend to seek any. Most of the farmers around here who farm organically as we do (not that there are many of us) choose not to pay the government for the privilege of being inspected and blessed by them. That means however that we aren’t legally allowed to say that our produce is “organic.” We use words like “chemical-free” instead and rely on first-party certifications (i.e. we invite customers to visit our farm and see for themselves how we tend it).
