The farmer in the dell…

I’m not exactly sure what a “dell” is (I guess I’ll have to research that in the morning), but here are  just a few of the stories in the news on farming and how it’s sweeping the nation.

Lets start in Virginia with “Saavy Farmers Open the Gate to Agritourism” by Laura Bly at USA Today.  With more and more people wanting to know where there food is coming from, this was bound to happen.

From there, we’ll head to New York and “Urban Farmers Crops Go From Vacant Lot to Market” by Tracie McMillan at the New York Times. Again, people are looking for local food.

Then we go down to Philadelphia and “Where Industry Once Hummed, Urban Garden Finds Success” by Jon Hurdle, again at the New York Times.

Finally, we’ll finish with an article from good old St. Louis,  “Sweet Tast of Hard Times” by Georgina Gustin at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Chow for now!
