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.
