“We need to think always more seriously and cooperatively about the urgent need for locally owned, appropriately scaled value-adding industries situated in the countryside.

So long as our rural communities are limited to the production of raw materials for export, they will bear the burdens that colonial people have always borne.

​We need small food-processing and woodworking plant of all kinds, both to serve directly the local communities and to capture for those communities a larger share of the income from local products.
​We need to find ways to promote local investment in such local enterprises.”
—Wendell Berry
