Dwindling Heritage

This top-ten e-mailed NYT article struck close to home, in both the geographic and deeper senses of the phrase. Indeed, I (and possibly some other readers of this blog) have found other pursuits to occupy our lives. Particularly interesting aspects of the article are the comments about partisan politics and the toilsome isolation of farming.

And while that state line may be relevant for some purposes, this issue raises different group identities. Family farms, big farms, policymakers, career farmers, and curious youth are all players in this human story about the evolving (or devolving, in the views of some) nature of the industry.
