Just noodling around the internet today, I found a link to Old Shaw Farm in South Peacham, Vermont. (Nice site, and they look like nice folks.) There was a link to a story in the Boston.com news, "Going back to the land: Young people moving in to fill agricultural niches." From the article: "While Peace Corps volunteers of decades past sought to aid African countries facing famine, these young people see a dire state of agriculture in the United States. Many of the young farmers and college students studying for a life in farming said they worry that as family farms are sold to large agribusinesses, food has been corrupted by chemicals and produced with exploited migrant workers. They also say that sales of onetime farmland to housing developers are worsening sprawl and that with small-scale farming they can begin to reverse those trends."
Awesome. Wonderful. Thumbs up.
