Brett Schenning’s photographs aim to capture the hope that drives southern sustainable farmers. Hope that they will succeed in raising foods to nourish people in their communities. Hope they their hard work will both bear fruit and enable them to pay their bills. Hope that the ways they farm will ensure that the land will continue to support future generations. These photographs present select southern farms that differ in many ways, but are united in their stewards’ belief that sustainable agriculture can make the world a better place.
