Ee I Ee I Oh

Here's a good article from my hometown paper, the Daily Progress, discussing the challenges faced today by old family farms including ours, Poplar Branch Farm.* As it quotes my father:
"The whole agriculture sector is facing a lot of challenges. There’s tremendous pressure to get out of farming."
It's true, keeping those old farms alive is a tough business. Take a gander.

* The print version also included nice big color photos of my parents schlepping around with sheep. I like having documented proof that they aren't just loafing their days away up there.

    There is no slacking by these farmers. It is work from dawn to dusk and even after, since there is now electricity in the barn!
