The Other Farm
One farm lies 8 feet below sea level, in the peat meadows of the Netherlands. The other farm is at 750 feet in the hills of Vermont in the USA. But they have so much in common: the same family has been farming each one for three generations; they witnessed prosperity, and the increase in scale of agriculture; each made the leap to organic farming.
For eleven years, photographer and writer Ellen Kok followed life on
De Beekhoeve in Kamerik and Lilac Ridge Farm in Brattleboro, asked questions and took photos.
