This program sets sail with a different breed of fishermen who make their living on the water while treading lightly upon it. Meet old school fishermen in the Pacific Northwest reviving the tuna industry, young fishermen (and women) creating Community Supported Fisheries along the Eastern seaboard and the next generation of fish farmers in western Massachusetts.

Meet a new breed of ranchers who are leading the red meat revolution by returning to traditional styles of raising cattle. Iowan bison ranchers, Georgian cattlemen and Californian cowgirls all have one thing in common - grass.
