Article-USA Today

Great article in USA Today about contemporary small farmers in the United States. Small acreage, partnerships, frugal living, technological advances and career choices.

A quote from the article-"For these new farmers, going back to the land isn't a rejection of conventional society, but an embrace of growing crops and raising animals for market as an honorable, important career choice — one that's been waning since 1935, when the U.S. farms peaked at 6.8 million."

Read it in it's entirety here.
