Everything you need to know about food reform in one video

This is Will Harris of White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, Georgia, a fifth-generation cattle farmer and celebrated figure in sustainable agriculture. If you give this little film a few minutes, you'll better understand the recent history of food and get a bit smarter about its future.

My favorite moment might be this: "The older I get, the stronger my sense of place becomes, until I'm really not happy unless I'm here on this farm. Every morning, I start my day with a big cup of coffee in my pastures -- I like being there when the sun comes up. And every evening, I end my day with a 750 ml glass of wine in my pastures -- I like to be there when the sun goes down.

"I really don't much care what I have to do between those two events, but it really ticks me off if I miss one of them."
