The Agro Rebel: Austrian Farmer Defies the State, Plants Fruit Trees, Uses Pigs & Peas to Plow Vegetable FieldsSubmitted by RobHino on Sun, 04/21/2013 - 15:34
A big special thanks to Hawkiye for bringing this video to my attention.
This Austrian farmer and forester practices "permaculture," a different kind of farming on his mountain property. With this certain form of organic-agriculture, he is very convincing and successful. Contrary to all conventional rules and despite annual average temperatures of 4.5°C and an altitude of between 900m-1400m, he cultivates cherries, apples, mushrooms, kiwis, lemons, pumpkins, potatoes and zucchinis.
This man is a living example of defiance, determination, dexterity, and definiteness of purpose. He leads by example, and proves how to change a community without the use of force.
He is the Agro Rebel.
The pig farming technique is explained at 39:00, but the entire documentary is amazing!
There is a post from 2008 on the DP about this man.
