“I think our lives are simply too precious to live ‘em without hope for the future of agriculture, and within that hope for the future of agriculture, the hope for humanity.”

The Works of Dr. John Ikerd

“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 information regarding his various books, can be found at
