For seven years Jon Magee worked on organic vegetable farms in the Northeast. In 2012 he published Small Farm Equipment, an introduction to working with tools and equipment on the farm. His current work as a writer and activist centers around the historical and social context of land tenure, industrialized agriculture, farm labor, and economic justice.



“From the beginning I was skeptical of the idea of an apprenticeship. I didn’t think it would put you in a good place to own your own farm because it costs money to buy land.” [6:00]
