Farming – The New American Dream

Great article from the Huffington Post about the new farming renaissance.   Gene Logsdon and Wendell Berry are both mentioned in the article, with Logsdon providing a good quote for the piece.

I think this is all just part of a culture that is looking for a way to add meaning to their life.  Many people don’t really derive the kind of satisfaction from their vocations that they would hope to, so they are seeking alternatives.  There is something about working with your hands that can be very satisfying, and being able to see tangible results from that work increases the satisfaction.
