Raw Milk Farmer Calls It Quits
Read this story, it is a bummer for the farmer, yet there is a lot of truth as to the cost of a small farm. With regulation and subsidies rampant, it is becoming impossible for a small farmer to stay true to their principles and remain small. I am glad that they decided to opt out rather than cave in, work double the hours and comprimise their ideals. I hate to see this happen, either way. The country needs more small producers, not less.
