Farm in the Hills

Joan Mitropoulos and her husband, George, farm and run a small restaurant in the hills south of Chania. When they were children, they ate meat once a week at most; now they eat it nearly every day.


Jon Miller of Homelands Productions traveled to the Greek island of Crete to find out why its obesity rate has increased over the years. He took these photos along the way.
