This small-scale, mixed-farming cooperative in the Basque province of Biskaia is an incredible example of food sovereignty understanding, application and practice. Under the guidance of 25 year cooperative veterans Xabier and John, Biskaigana is a wonderfully successful demonstration of how famers from all ages and backgrounds can work in close partnership to build a genuinely reciprocal farming community. Check out this great interview with the team discussing why they formed a cooperative and how it functions on a day-to-day basis.
