Abstract

This paper examines an alternative to the conventional Danish farming industry, from the perspective of the next generation of organic farmers from Kalø Økologiske Landbrugsskole (Kalø Organic Agriculture College). We found that the current state of affairs is liable for negatively contributing to the climate crisis, through excessive cultivation of the Danish land mass, and CO₂ and methane emissions emanating from the meat-industry, specifically, in pig production. Moreover, we found that the industry is economically unstable, caused by inflation and overreliance on growth and optimization, limiting the flexibility of Danish farmers and hindering conversion to sustainable land-use. As such, we proceeded on the base of necessity for a fundamental re-shaping and -thinking of the field of agriculture going forward and examined the understanding of the forthcoming landscape for young Danish farmers. To this end, we accounted for the environmental ethics in the normative view of nature, superseded from an anthropocentric worldview based on liberal values and domestication of nature – as seen through our inclusion of anthropologist Ghassan Hage. We then examined the principles of organic farming, and the accompanying ontology of ‘green ecology’, prevalent, in part, on Kalø Økologiske Landbrugsskole. To gather empiric data of the institution and its students, we went on a field excursion, where we overlooked two courses, in pig’s digestion and introduction to pig production, and interviewed two farming-students with tangible plans for the future. Both the institution and our two subjects, Adrian (A) and Viktor (V), showcased different schools of thought in regard to the future of agriculture and view of nature, but a definite wish for a disruption of the conventional Danish farming. A seemed to project an idealistic execution of the organic principles, but, in lingo with his future partner, V, took certain reservations with adhering to the economic ‘reality’ of running a business. In so, displaying both an ecological view of nature and sustainability, whilst reproducing anthropocentric liberal values as defined by Hage. Conclusively, we discussed the pros and cons of the different views of nature, the future of organic agriculture in Denmark and the potential of A and V’s participation in shifting the paradigm. Nonetheless, we find the necessity for a future shift in the view of nature, to accommodate a different approach to agriculture in regards to the climate crisis and sustainability.
