Bukaty) PENOBSCOT, Maine - Heather and Phil Retberg's Quill's End Farm is idyllic to the point of New England cliché. The farm is a way of life Heather Retberg said needs to be protected from an aggressive regulatory structure that keeps small farms from getting food to local people. State legislators' pushback against "food sovereignty" advocates such as Retberg, in Maine and elsewhere in the country, has only emboldened her. "This used to be how it was decades ago. It's only changed recently, and that's a pretty aberrant period in our food history," she said.

In a recent correspondence with WhyHunger, Heather Retberg of Quill's End Farm, a 100-acre farm in Penobscot, Maine, tells us that the ruling on June 17 has "galvanized support, and a number of people from western and central Maine are checking in to register their commitment to food sovereignty and their hope to pass the ordinance in more towns if the state and courts refuse to understand the importance of preserving our traditional food ways, customs and cultural heritage, food freedom, local economy, vibrancy and resilience."

Philip and Heather Retberg of Quills End Farm in Penobscot have a lot in common with other young couples I've seen repopulate old farms: a clear commitment to good farming practices and good food, to improving their community and, through it, our planet.
Heather and Philip Retberg were among the farmers featured in From the Land: Maine Farms at Work, my 2009 collaboration with photographer Bridget Besaw.
