Guy Evans, Executive Producer of Broken Limbs
The ultimate goal behind the creation of Broken Limbs was to help viewers begin to change the way they think about the food they eat and the vital role of farmers in their communities.
Broken Limbs took as its starting point the writings of Dr. John Ikerd, professor emeritus from the University of Missouri. Dr. Ikerd’s work comprises a vast and thoughtful body of literature on the topics of sustainable agriculture and the economics thereof.
Since retiring from the University in early 2000, Ikerd spends most of his time writing and speaking out on these issues. We encourage anyone interested in these topics to spend some time perusing his work. His many papers, as well as the full text of his new book entitled The Case for Common Sense can be found at: www.ssu.missouri.edu/faculty/jikerd
