Yes!! This, Polyface Farm, is rational, scientific farming: this is integrated, inductive farming based on principles of biology and evolution. The stuff that goes by the name of modern farming today is myopic and pseudo-scientific: it is all fancy with mass production techniques and chemistry — shiny stuff that we find all pretty and awe-inspiring — but uses those things out of context of biology and evolution — or in denial of those things. Plants today are designed to grow in impoverished soils, providing us with nutrient-deficient vegetables — whereas real science would look at both detail and big picture to figure out, as Polyface does, how to make nutrient-dense soils in which to grow the nutrient-dense vegetables that we need to live optimally. Surviving in a malnourished state — how modern factory, pseudo-scientific farming wants us to live — is not a life proper to man. We deserve better.
This widespread lack of integration and induction today is another indictment of the current culture and school system. They are failing us. They are making us cognitive dependents, not cognitive detectives, adventurers and heroes. They are cutting our wings, instead of nurturing them. We need a revolution.
