I picked up a copy of The New Pioneer (farming magazine) two weeks ago on a road trip we made to Montana. The editor's intro intrigued me....
"...a growing trend in this country--the resurgence of the family farm with a 21st century twist. Many in their 20s and 30s now see working the land as a more rewarding way to earn a living than taking a job on Wall Street. These back-to-the-landers are well educated, familiar with the latest technology and determined to farm organically. And they want to leave the world a better place for their children and grandchildren."
We are back-to-the-landers. We moved to rural Weber County two years ago to embark on a dream of agriculture. We have four dogs and four ducks. It's our own version of The Walton's.
Last summer, I started showing support for my 4-H neighbors at the fair.
