The personal loans are useful for people, which would like to organize their own organization. In fact, that's very comfortable to receive a credit loan.

I am not surprised at all. This "trend" (not really a trend as I don't think it will go away) makes perfect sense. People are eating healthier and understand the environmental benefits of buying locally produced food.

On top of all of that, the Greenmarkets are cool and convenient.

I also grew up on a family farm, and the idea that farmers would be "fetishized" by city folks, was totally foreign at that time.

Dawn Rivers Baker

You're right ... who'da thunk it?

Too bad all this new-found fetishizing isn't making it into the bank accounts of the farmers here in upstate NY.
