Keri Brandt Off and Janine Fitzgerald are professors of sociology at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, and they're both ranchers. They've coined the term "zombie agriculture" to describe a food system that raises food from dead soil--it looks like it's alive but doesn't have the life or history or interactive communities on the level of either soil or interpersonal relatedness. Can we keep it from eating our brains?
