Listed below are links to weblogs that reference new business models for small farmers:
Agriculture Goes Local! That is a joke. The richer people around Seattle and Portland will pay up to three times as much for food as average. The majority of poor and middle class folks can't afford to, and will not pay the local modern agriculture prices. The two of us maintain a big garden because we enjoy gardening, and it could be even bigger if we could afford to sell some of what we produce. Can't afford to sell good quality produce, because the city and county slap on so many fees for permits and inspections, that we can barely get our money back, let alone make a profit. So we donate our healthy produce to charity, for which we pay no fees for permits and inspections.
