Four Seasons Farm

What's wrong with Eliot Coleman? James McWilliams, a critic of farmers markets and local foods, has a few words in his latest book, Just Food:
Because the Colemans of the organic world offer such a sharp contrast to industrial-organic and conventional operations, many influential food writers have swooned over them and told us that the main task is to protect the founding ideals of organic agriculture from the ever-hovering talons of agribusiness and its taste for chemically driven growth.... Despite my genuine respect for the agroecological ideas promoted by Coleman and others, I do not think that organic is the answer to our broken food system.
