The End of Farming

From the bean of Green Bean.


Long before I kept four little chickens on my own, I enjoyed the firm yolks and soft whites of a wonderful, local ranch that sustainably raised pastured hens and hogs. I stopped buying their eggs when our own hens started laying but have kept track of their journeys. The ranch distributed its eggs through a local CSA that I recently signed up for and adore. Just a week or so, ago, the ranch decided to close its doors.

If you care at all about sustainable agriculture, small family farms, preserving farmland or the future of farming, please please read the post here where the farm announces it is closing shop. It is both heart-wrenching and eye opening. What can we do to preserve our options for good, clean food?

This is the second closing of a farm I have read this week. NOT GOOD!
