Big-Money Investors Gear Up For A Trillion-Dollar Bet On Farmland

As farmers age and retire, the rural economy is changing.

A group of farmers, restaurants, and businesses team up to provide food to those in need

There's always been more to farming than soil and seeds--supply chain partnerships are key--“Do you have trucks? Do you have food? Do you have refrigerator space? Do you have volunteers?”

In response to a food chain left broken by the coronavirus pandemic, a group of 25 organizations including restaurants, food pantries, and farms are working to keep restaurant workers employed, food pantries stocked, and people fed.

The Sickness in Our Food Supply

Local food doesn't look like a luxury when what is resilient is revealed to be brittle and what was invisible is suddenly essential.

Congratulations for the recognition of your family's consistent hard work and stewardship of our precious Agricultural lands Soleado Lavender Farm! What a great read and wonderful ode to creativity and grit.
