Down on the Farm(s)

I had the opportunity this week to visit 3 farms in Virginia.  It was interesting to see how different size farms operate.  We talked local, pricing, distribution, farmer’s markets and food politics.  We discussed how small farmers worked with large produce distributors to get their products out there. I went into the fields while pickers were harvesting.  It was a great day.  Though it was not my first day on a farm, it was still an interesting and thought provoking day. I know I wouldn’t want to do it for a living.
