Geoff takes us on a tour of an amazing farm belonging to Warren Brush in California. Once a monoculture apple/persimmon/avocado orchard, the farm now produces a variety of products including cheese and other creamery items and heirloom pork. Warren has achieved an incredible transformation in this land that was on a steady decline. By stacking functions and using animal systems, he has increased fertility, and supports a greater diversity of products which makes a much more stable ecologic and economic system. 14 family members work on the farm spanning 4 generations.
