This guide briefly presents the economic, social, and ecologic benefits of sustainable agriculture, though it is not the intent of the guide to persuade landowners of a particular set of values or to promote a specific manner of farming. As will be discussed in Chapter One, there are a variety of ways to farm sustainably, and a truly sustainable lease must fulfill the concerns and needs of landowner and tenant.
