The countryside stands as the middle kingdom between city and virgin beauty, the jungle, the mountain, the desert, or the sea. It is here in this middle kingdom that we human beings have, throughout history, conjured up the richest and most complex cultures based on agriculture. The countryside is also where this encounter between the resilient hand of man and the animals, the earth, the seeds, water and sun is expressed each day. This encounter gives rise to a vast array of fruits, corn and wheat, mangos, bananas, acorns, cheese and wine, honey, and lettuces.
