On our cover: Rafael Aponte is the owner and operator of Rocky Acres Community Farm in the town of Freeville, just northeast of Ithaca, New York. In this photo from fall 2017, Aponte gives a tour of his 10-acre operation, explaining the cultural significance of raising goats for Black and other communities of color in central Upstate New York.
