Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Farm Living (Subsidized by a Job Elsewhere)
The New York Times - 2/7/2009.
EVER thought of chucking it all and moving to the country? According to the Agriculture Department, an increasing number of Americans are doing just that, by embracing a “Green Acres” lifestyle. But few of them are making a living at it: more often than not, their work in the fields is subsidized by an off-the-farm job.

By Reeser Manley – Planting peas is an inaugural event in the gardening year, an early-spring ritual that starts with spreading composted goat manure over the surface of a sunny, well-drained bed, forking it in, then raking the bed surface level.
