Farmland (Editted)

It has come to my attention that the web citation is not posting as it should. This is one of the many quirks of WordPress, unfortunately. Sometimes the citation posts as it should sometimes not; with no rime or reason. So here is the web citation again:



Since Catholic Rural Solutions is based on the Catholic Back-to-the-Land Movement I’m constantly researching, experimenting, perfecting, and ravenously reading and viewing whatever deals with the concept of a Catholic Rural Community or things related to agriculture. In line with this I recently came across a documentary which deals with small family farms in America. It encompasses everything from a small vegetable farm in Pennsylvania to a small tract in the upper Midwest. It also covers many aspects of modern farm production from GMO’s to large scale chicken and hog operations; all based on family farms.
I recommend this video not only to those who’s pipedream is to finally get some land and become somewhat self-sufficient, but also to all those consumers who care about what their family eats and the processes involved in getting the grain from the field and the hog on the hoof to your family’s table from the point of view of the small family farmer.
While there are some aspects of this video that I disagree with, such as, GMO’s and the statistics of how of the American food system originates with family farms, overall it presents an authentic picture of contemporary farm life.
It is well worth watching for both the physical beauty of farmlands and also for the information it supplies.

About Catholic Rural Solutions

This group is for the practical application of Catholic Distributist teachings as promoted by Pope St. Pius X, Belloc, Chesterton, Maurin and others in the 20th century. This group is also a respite for traditional Catholics who adhere to the Tridentine Rite of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and who share a concern for small independent Catholic communities throughout the world. These communities while primarily small holding farmers, craftsmen and tradesman all espouse an integrated life based on Catholic Social Justice and the Sacred Magisterium of the Church. Through this we intend to inject the Distributist economic principles into the greater society. Please fell free to share your experiences in this vein. Flaming, proselytizing and persecution WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
