To share some of last week's inspiring JBF Leadership Awards ceremony with you, we've been posting videos of all our 2012 honorees as they accept their awards, as well as their contributions to our third annual JBF Food Conference. Today we present Wendell Berry (farmer, poet, and author, 
Lanes Landing Farm), whose acceptance speech—and introductions by JBF board of trustees chair Emily Luchetti and White House chef and senior policy advisor Sam Kass—is shown in the video above. In the video below, you'll find his talk at the conference: "A Fifty-Year Farm Bill."
