We agree with this.
Family farmers.

…and the family of farmers that includes:

city farmers
farmworkers
young farmers
aspiring farmers

we are the team of agricultural conspirators who are launching our small businesses around the country– carving out new territory and growing strong soil in the hills, and in the laser-land valleys of the American countryside.

Together we are a coalition of determined protagonists– backs bent, eyes on the horizon, fingers in the soil, hopes harnessed to the the agrarian democracy we are building.
