#Farming Friday 39: Tips from a Starter Vegetable Farmer

Thought + Food


We used to hear a lot about the farms being emptied out and the younger generation moving to the cities. But recently, I seem to read more stories like this: of younger people coming back to the farm and when they do so, they sometimes bring in a fresh approach as well: like the farmer in this story participating in a marketing effort that links the consumer directly to the farmer. That is a good step forward in enabling consumers to understand the actual process of growing food and hopefully, will make for a more nuanced discussion on food issues.
