Will Harris is on a mission to help save the world. He inherited a highly profitable, conventionally run farm from his ancestors. After many years, he found himself disgusted with the excess, cruelty, and small-town devastation. He decided to make a change to the land on the ground level. He joined me on Uncorking a Story to discuss  his memoir A BOLD RETURN TO GIVING A DAMN: One Farm, Six Generations, and the Future of Food in which he shares his groundbreaking, inspiring, and authoritative environmental call to action where he explores the link between food, health, and climate change.
