promoting local produce

this is a well-written article by a Minnesota farmer outlining a few of the problems faced by farmers that are trying to grow produce for local markets.  this is an issue i feel strongly about, but it’s easy to feel totally strangled by the government and big business, as the article shows.  i guess we’ll just have to keep on pushing!
