The fifth and final video in IATP's "Climate, agriculture and resilience" series follows farmer Tom Nuessmeier from La Sueur, Minnesota. Even as markets and farm policy encourage monocropping for maximum profit, Nuessmeier Farm is taking the long view on climate change. His 200-acre organic farm — producing farrow-to-finish hogs, corn, soy, oats, winter grains and alfalfa — is a rarity in its diversity and size, especially today.
