Great Article in the NYT on sustainable argiculture

I think y'all know how I feel about the factory farm system. It's terrible and bad karma for all of us who support it by refusing to become dope-smoking, hippie-wanna-be vegans (no offence to out mostly veggie Monty). There has been a movment in this country for the last 20 years as a counter to the factory farm and this article from the NYT shows that not only will a sustainable farm work, but will work quite well at the small business size.

I have been doing my part by buying stuff from Your Dekalb Famers Market that is locally produced and want to do more. If more farmers can see that you can actually make a good living this way (this farm averages $300,000 yearly) perhaps we will see in our lifetime food animals treated with the respect they deserve before they reach our plates.
