About the Artist: Tanya Berry is an artist and agrarian who is deeply entwined with the Kentucky community surrounding the hillside farm she shares with her husband, Wendell Berry.
About the Book: At a farm in Henry County, Kentucky, Tanya Berry photographed a celebratory ritual of farm life: hog killing. These photographs, collected for the first time alongside Wendell Berry’s expressive essay, reveal the American agrarian tradition at its most harmonious: strong men and women toiling with shared purpose toward a common wealth.
