Although “agriculture” often means big farm enterprises, it can also simply mean “the practice of cultivating the land or raising stock.” I don’t think Mr. Pollan objects to that. For him, it’s all in the means whereas for Big Ag, it’s often more about the ends especially getting the animals to market really fast and increasing profits.
