Farming may be in Forrest Pritchard’s DNA, but his journey in sustainable agriculture is in many ways an accidental one. He found himself at the forefront of sustainable ways to raise livestock during his fight to keep his family’s farm alive in Virginia. Now Pritchard is out to document the stories of others who are part of the growing sustainability movement in agriculture, many of whom are challenging perceptions for what farmers are supposed to be.
