Eric Herm grew up on a cotton farm near Ackerly, Texas. He left the farm to pursue other interests, traveling to various places across the world before returning to his roots. Upon arriving back on his family farm, he noticed many changes in not only the landscape but the methods of commercial agriculture that were causing more long-term problems. He began searching for answers to these problems, slowly discovering healthier organic methods which provided the inspiration for his book, Son of a Farmer, Child of the Earth.
Eric is passionate about spreading the word about the dangers of GMO’s and the use of toxic herbicides and pesticides. He advocates everyone getting involved in this movement because as he puts it, “everybody eats.” Listen to his informative and inspirational message.
